We’re sometimes asked to provide details that don’t appear in a web version of a recipe here on our site. In many cases, our web versions contain the full recipe, including all baking instructions, temperatures, etc. But in most cases, we can’t do that. Why not?
Well, to make a long story short, our publisher would kill us if we put all our recipes up here on the website, for free! There’d really be little reason for anyone to buy our books. This site is mainly a way of reaching out to our readers, and supporting them as they work on recipes that appear in Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day, and in October of 2011, Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day. If the answer to your question appears in one of our books, we’ll probably just refer you there.
We really enjoy connecting with our readers this way, and we’re proud to be among the few cookbook authors who are personally answering questions from people who’ve bought our books (thank you!). We hope to talk with all of you about our recipes soon.
