    Default Hey, Greg! Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day is released today

    http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/?p=1087

    I'd go to the signing tonight but I have to go to my book group instead.
    Feh. The link above is to Jeff's post on making the Master Recipe -- a
    whole wheat/all-purpose flour combo.

    I mixed up half a batch on Sunday and baked it yesterday and we're
    loving it. It makes a fine tuna melt sandwich. Not as high as I'd like
    it, but it appears the recipe I was using had an error in it. The
    recipe I'm posting has the correction in it.

    Master Recipe for Whole Grain Bread from "Healthy Bread in Five Minutes
    a Day"

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Recipe By: ZoŽ Francois and Jeff Hertzberg
    Ingredient amounts in parentheses are for half a batch (2 loaves).

    5-1/2 cups whole wheat flour (2-3/4 cups)
    2 cups all purpose flour (1 cup)
    1 tablespoon kosher salt (1-1/2 teaspoons)
    1-1/2 tablespoons granulated yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons [or 1 packet])
    4 tablespoons vital wheat gluten (2 tablespoons)
    4 cups lukewarm water (2 cups)

    Whisk the dry ingredients together, then pour in the water. Mix well
    with a spoon, let rise on counter for two hours; refrigerate, loosely
    covered, several hours or overnight.

    Shape loaf, let rise 90 minutes.

    Preheat oven and stone to 450 degrees for 30 minutes. Recipe says middle
    rack of oven, but mine do better one level lower than middle.

    Brush with water, sprinkle on seed mixture if you're using a seed
    mixture; slash and bake; slide onto stone; pour 1 cup hot water into
    preheated broiler pan in oven to create steam.

    Bake 30 minutes.

    Notes:
    Mixed the dough for the first time 10-24-2009; will bake on Monday.

    Zoe is on Twitter, and I responded to something she said about the new
    book, a few weeks ago. I told her that I knew she knows you...and
    said that I "knew" you . She says she adores you!

    She has been giving tantalizing hints about the new book on Twitter,
    mentioning some addicting sounding recipes. I will get the book when
    I get to the bay area... Just too many books to pack right now..LOL. I
    think I am going to have to get another bookshelf when I get there...

    I am looking forward to this new book, although I can get terrific
    bread in the SFBA.

    Christine, who just remembered she has to bring her bread dough
    container to the bay area.

    THIS book? It's just out today. Amazon's been shipping since
    yesterday, I believe.

    MOF, I think they're there within the next couple days to record
    something on WGN-TV. Whole Foods should have VWG. Read the
    artisanbreadinfive site -- info and pics there.

    I've got two Cambro containers, a 6-quart and a 4-quart that will be
    here on Thursday. Ordered from webstaurant.com -- more reasonably
    priced than any other i found.

    I think mine is a 6 quart. I got it at Surfas, in Culver City, the
    last time I was there. Don't remember how much I paid for it, but the
    prices are on their website.

    Thanks, luv! I just made my first three loaves this past Sunday, first
    bread I'd baked for a whiles. Now I'll be back to baking bread on a weekly
    basis...this year I'm gonna get more adventurous!

    A friend of mine has the book and loves it, she makes LOVERLY rye bread...

    I'll look at Zoe's website, maybe she'll be in the Chicago area soon, I'd
    sure to like to meet her...

    Is the wheat gluten commonly available? I have a Whole Foods and some
    health food stores nearby, I'm sure they'd have it. I could also order
    online...

    a cake mix box.

    Try the brioche dough from ABiFMaD for these mini-cinnamon rolls; I made
    them for the class I did a month ago:
    http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/?p=308 (the link is for the roll
    recipe and construction, not the dough recipe).
