Peter Reinhart’s Artisan Breads Every Day

I have finally cracked open Peter Reinhart‘s new book for more than just perusal!  After last week’s nasty flu virus which eradicated all interest in food, my excitement about food has been renewed by my return to health.

I am having a few people over for a potluck this evening and really wanted to make some bread for the evening.  I got a late start on planning, so the 5 days of sourdough process were definitely out.  I needed something that I could start last night and bake up this evening.  Reinhart’s recipes yield some of the best bread I have ever had, and I am really looking forward to seeing how his simpler versions of them hold up to taste testing.

I made up the dough for his basic french bread last night – super easy, especially with the addition to my kitchen of a scale.  No more measuring cups and cups of bread flour!

I will report on results tomorrow.  If bread is going to be this easy, it is going to be happening all the time.  =)
