Gluten-Free Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day – Review


Let me just start off by saying I am one happy Gluten-Free Foodie! My wish came true this year when Zoë François and Jeff Hertzberg, M.D. created their 5th and newest book – Gluten-Free Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day.   The entire book is Gluten-Free with 90 new, easy and scrumptious recipes all made with Gluten-Free Flours.

It is no surprise that I love this cookbook because it includes everything I ever dreamt about enjoying again and more! The recipes include Peasant Loaves, Flatbreads, Pizzas, Enriched Gluten-Free Breads and Pastries.  It is so easy to follow the recipes once you mix the Master Mix – the possibilities are endless. The hardest part for me was choosing which recipe I wanted to make.  Soft Pretzels, Bialys, Beignets Cinnamon Rolls, Naan, Pita – Oh my! Which one?!

I chose an old favorite that I haven’t had in years, Gluten-Free English Muffins.  When I was a kid we used to toast our English Muffins in place of buns for our hamburgers.  We would smother them with lots of butter and then serve with an nice crispy helping of plain old fashioned lightly salted potato chips. Mmm…I can’t wait! 

Gluten-Free Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day recipes are so easy and I have to say that it was love at first bite.  I must admit one little confession, when the first English Muffin was done I was beyond excited to smother it with butter and raspberry jam that I did not stop to think …take a picture!  So sorry but you will just have to get this new cookbook and make them for yourself, friends and family.  

I highly recommend giving the gift of Gluten-Free Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day to everyone this holiday season.  I suggest an add on gift certificate to your local kitchen or restaurant supply shop for the measuring bin for the dough to rise in and maybe a special silicone spoon/spatula or a large cooling rack. Maybe a gift certificate for Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free products. 

This book is perfect for the beginner to Gluten-Free baking because all it includes information about Gluten-Free flours, techniques and simply detailed instructions for the recipes.  It really is easy to make Gluten-Free treats everyday thanks to Zoë and Jeff.

Excuse me while I dash off to a special luncheon…


…my deliciousness awaits at home in front of the fireplace. 




A special thanks to Zoë François, Jeff Hertzberg MD and Thomas Dunne Books for sending me a copy of Gluten-Free Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day cookbook to review.  My thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own and are not influenced by the gift.  I have been a big fan of theirs since their first book and plan to continue as they create more deliciously delectable Gluten-Free recipes.
