My sweet hubby is a wonderful cook, and he's always on the lookout for new and tasty recipes. A month or so ago, he bought a fresh batch of cookbooks, and one of them was Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Oh my, the man has been on a mission ever since!
He had to initially purchase a few essential items from King Arthur Four and our local Williams-Sonoma store for his baking quest (e.g., pizza stone, bakers peel, oven thermometer, dough rising bucket). Now he is routinely baking us yummy bread! With the high cost of artisan breads these days at the grocery store, we will quickly recoup our investment in a few baking tools. Best of all, the taste is FRESH!
This is rosemary/thyme flavored dough ready to be baked. The dough was first shaped and put on the bakers peel with a scattering of blue cornmeal. After rising, it was then scored and dusted with flour before being transferred to the hot pizza stone in the oven.
And here is the final result! Mmmmmm…
Would you like us to put out another place setting at the dinner table for you?
