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!

The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day is Launched! Back to Basics updated, and a Great TV segment on KSTP…

Since Zoe first published these photos a few years back, it’s become one of our most popular posts. Why? It answers many of the questions that you asked us here on the site, and we’ve incorporated that into our new book, The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, which was released today. Thank you all for making this new edition possible–our readers are where the new ideas come from. We were on TV this afternoon talking about all this, on Twin Cities Live (KTSP-ABC Minneapolis):

Pumpkin Swirl Bread

Pumpkin Swirl Bread | Breadin5

Pumpkin pie and brioche are two of my all time favorites, so why not combine the two. The result is a bread rich with butter, eggs and spiced pumpkin puree. Spreading the pumpkin onto the brioche dough and rolling it into a log creates the swirl pattern when you cut it. The bread is gorgeous and tasty, perfect for Thanksgiving or just a fall morning with a cup of coffee.

Next week is the official release of our book The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Woot! To celebrate we are doing a giveaway, before the book even hits the stands. It is a small token of our appreciation for all your help in creating this new edition. We’ve incorporated what we’ve learned from your comments, your questions and your suggestions. Please leave us a comment below about your favorite experience baking bread or what you are most eager to try. We will give away 5 copies of the new book to randomly picked winners next week.* Thank you!
