Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day distills the renowned baking instructor's professional techniques down to the basics, delivering artisan bread recipes that anyone with flour and a fridge can make and bake with ease. Reinhart begins with the simplest French bread, then moves on to familiar classics such as ciabatta, pizza dough, and soft sandwich loaves, and concludes with fresh specialty items like pretzels, crackers, croissants, and bagels. Each recipe is broken into "Do Ahead" and "On Baking Day" sections, making every step--from preparation through pulling pans from the oven--a breeze, whether you bought your loaf pan yesterday or decades ago. These doughs are engineered to work flawlessly for busy home bakers: most require only a straightforward mixing and overnight fermentation. The result is reliably superior flavor and texture on par with loaves from world-class artisan bakeries, all with little hands-on time. America's favorite baking instructor and innovator Peter Reinhart offers new time-saving techniques accompanied by full-color, step-by-step photos throughout so that in no time you'll be producing fresh batches of Sourdough Baguettes, 50% and 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Loaves, Soft and Crusty Cheese Bread, English Muffins, Cinnamon Buns, Panettone, Hoagie Rolls, Chocolate Cinnamon Babka, Fruit-Filled Thumbprint Rolls, Danish, and Best-Ever Biscuits. Best of all, these high-caliber doughs improve with a longer stay in the fridge, so you can mix once, then portion, proof, and bake whenever you feel like enjoying a piping hot treat."show more

Review quote

"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"show more
