Our Bread, Easy Bread

Bread-making is hard, laborious work, isn’t it? Well, it doesn’t have to be. I’ve become a convert to a new, spectacularly easy way of making delicious, aromatic loaves of bread.

Watch the Technique

I don’t really know my way around a kitchen, but I do know how to make great bread. How easy is it? Take a look.


Both History and Philosophy Behind It

You may have read the accompanying New York Times piece about Jim Lahey--a Manhattan baker and “no-knead” bread advocate--that explains how to very simply make a loaf of very good bread. I tried it, and from my very first loaf, I was hooked.

Good news, his book, My Bread: The Revolutionary No-Work, No-Knead Method, is available at the library! Also good news: the basic recipe is available on the New York Times site. 

OK, so this particular loaf I made may not have the ideal shape, but goshDARN(!) is it good!

Happy baking!
