Perhaps you've wondered what exactly artisan bread is. There actually is no firm definition of it, although it does make one think of artists preparing some exceptionally tasty bread. That is as a good definition as any. Artisan bread is any bread that isn't packed and has a short shelf-life. You want to use it as quickly as possible. In addition, it makes the best presents. No one can resist this kind of present! And, for sure, people will be delighted to receive one of the delicious breads listed here in The Wonder of Artisan Bread.
They are breads that are indeed a work of art. Nothing is ordinary about them - they are bursting with extra flavors of the kind you simply cannot buy at the supermarkets or even bakeries. Their flavor is extraordinary. And the aroma fills your entire house.
It is remarkably easy to bake your own bread. Without all the additives you get in store-bought breads, it is much healthier for you and your family. It also costs much less. While you can buy reasonably good bread at the store, the good stuff is extremely pricey. Instead, bake your own! Do several loaves at a time and freeze them for when you need them. Do not worry if you do not know how to make them! The Wonder of Artisan Bread has everything you need! Your family will be thrilled to be able to enjoy the freshly baked breads we recommend in this cookbook. With only a few exceptions, the cookbook assumes you do NOT have a bread machine, which, of course, makes baking your own bread even easier.
