Fast and Easy Recipes for World-Class Breads
PETER REINHART is a baking instructor and faculty member at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, North Carolina. He was the cofounder of Brother Juniper's Bakery in Santa Rosa, California, and is the author of seven books on bread baking, including Crust and Crumb, the 2002 James Beard Cookbook of the Year and IACP Cookbook of the Year, The Bread Baker's Apprentice, and the 2008 James Beard Award-winning Peter Reinhart's Whole Grain Breads.
"Peter Reinhart is the Leonardo da Vinci of bread; his recipes are
foolproof, his research exhaustive and yet a delight to read and
follow, and his hunger for knowledge and technique is boundless and
infinite. He is without a doubt the definitive source of true style
and information when it comes to all things baked and delicious,
and my go-to guy for all things leavened and sandwichable"
--Mario Batali, author of Molto Italiano
"I've been using Peter's overnight pizza dough technique
religiously for years--mix, knead, chill overnight, shape, bake. So
simple, and minimal planning is required. In this book, many of the
recipes use a similar approach-no poolish or pre-fermenting. From
pain au levain and pretzels to panettone and pizza dough, all the
greatest hits and every day favorites are covered."
--Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Cooking "Peter Reinhart's thoughtful, steadying presence combined with his matchless teaching skills and down-to-earth approach make reading and using Artisan Breads Every Day a great pleasure. His information demystifying the preparation and use of sourdough starters is both much needed and superb."
--Nancy Baggett, author of Kneadlessly Simple: Fabulous, Fuss-Free, No-Knead Breads "For most cooks, artisan bread baking is close to metaphysics. And each succeeding book about it only tends to deepen the mysteries and make trying it even more unlikely. Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day is one of the first books of its kind that actually made me want to stop reading and start baking."
--Russ Parsons, author of How to Peel a Peach
