When I saw the title Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day, I was intrigued. Healthy eating is at the top of the list of most people’s New Year’s resolutions, but January also brings long, cold nights, a desire to hibernate and a craving for carb-loaded comfort foods such as bread and chocolate.
Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables and Gluten-Free Ingredients (Thomas Dunne Books), was co-authored by Jeff Hertzberg, M.D. and pastry chef Zoë François. Their first bread-baking book, Artisan Breads in Five Minutes a Day, has sold over 200,000 copies, with rave reviews.
