From CBS-TV (KPIX-5) in San Francisco…

2013-11, CBS San Fran blogpost, Narsai David

From long-time San Francisco restauranteur, radio, and TV host Narsai David:

“In this new edition, they really, really make life so easy and so simple… baking your own bread virtually daily… the simple idea of making dough in advance and storing it… very, very clever.”

CBS-TV San Francisco, 2013

Dorie Greenspan endorsement on book jacket

Zoe met world-famous baker and cookbook author Dorie Greenspan a few years back when she was in New York to tape a segment for the Cooking Channel, on the Kelsey Nixon Show. We’re both huge fans of Dorie’s so we were thrilled when Dorie endorsed The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day for the back cover.

“Every step of Zoe and Jeff’s adventures in bread has been fascinating and delicious for us, the home bread bakers who follow them, but this book may be their most exciting yet, because they’ve incorporated years of readers’ questions, problems, and discoveries into every chapter…truly the all-you’ve-ever-wanted-to-know edition. And there are plenty of photographs… at last!”

Dorie Greenspan, James Beard Award-winning author of Around my French Table

Thanks Dorie!

Corrections to first printing of The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day (2013)

These errors snuck through, for The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day:

Page 83 Crock Pot Bread, Step 1:  Add the words “Place it on a sheet of parchment paper.”

Page 224, Step 4: Should call for an orange-size piece, not grapefruit-size.

Page 268, Ingredients list: The metric weight of brown rice flour should read 155 grams, not 160.

Pages 268 and 275, Ingredients list for Gluten-Free Master and Challah doughs: Add 1 1/4 cups (5 1/2 ounces / 155 grams) of Sorghum flour

Page 272: The metric weight of brown rice flour should read 310 grams, not 280.

Page 286, Gluten-Free Sweet Brioche: note new quantities for rice flour and tapioca, and the addition of cornstarch. The Ingredients list should be changed as follows:

White rice flour: 1 1/2 cups (8 1/2 ounces / 240 grams)

Tapioca flour: 1 cup (5 ounces / 140 grams)

Cornstarch (new ingredient): 4 cups (22 ounces / 625 grams); add it in Step 1, page 287

Use only melted butter in this recipe, not oil (omit oil from ingredients list)
