Fresh Artisan Bread

I love, love, love good bread. I miss the bread from il Fornaio in Rome. So one of my goals is to start making some really good bread. I have made traditional baguettes which take forever and really did not taste better than the ones I could pick up from our local super market. I also just really don't have that kind of time. But then I found something that is taking the foodie blog world by storm and that is Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I ordered my book last week but just could not wait so I scoured the Internet for the recipe for their master loaf and one of the co-authors had it on this site (I will let you visit that site for the recipe and directions).I made the dough last night and it did only take me 5 minutes and I baked two loaves tonight after work. This is a time commitment I'm willing to make! So I literally just took my first bite and I must say I'm VERY impressed. The crust is crisp yet chewy with an open and moist crumb. I really can't wait for my book to arrive now. Stay tuned, there will be much more bread to come!
