Holiday and Celebration Bread in Five Minutes a Day Promo with a Zojirushi Home Bakery Virtuoso Plus Breadmaker

When I shared promotions for Home Made Christmas (with a Le Creuset Dutch Oven)  and Set for the Holidays (with a Mauviel roaster) last week, I mentioned there was one additional holiday book from this season that blew me away. That book is Holiday and Celebration Bread in Five Minutes a Day: Sweet and Decadent Baking for Every Occasion by Jeff Hertzberg M.D. and Zoë François. This book made my best list of 2018 as well as my  gift guide.  

If you are remotely interested in bread baking, you are familiar with the Five Minutes a Day cookbook titles by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François. Their books have made bread and pizza making possible for millions of bakers who would otherwise shy away from tackling bread. Holiday and Celebration Bread, their latest, shares yeasted breads, doughnuts, rolls, coffee cakes, and other baked goods, many of which have global influences, and all perfect for any celebration or gift giving. 

Packed with baking tips and the authors' combined expertise this book shares recipes ranging from Greek cross-topped bread, Swedish tea ring, and Romanian Easter bread with ricotta custard to beignets and pita. The Raspberry star bread,  which we have linked below, is first on my list to make. I am so behind on all my baking self-imposed baking obligations including tackling my brioche from Modernist Bread to post about after the holidays. There is so much I want to bake (or cook) and so little time. I hope I live long enough to cross off all these delicious recipes on my to-bake list. 

Zoë François also shares many beautiful creations on her blog, Zoë Bakes

The recipe for the Raspberry star bread - Add this recipe to your Bookshelf (click the blue +Bookshelf button) can be found in our online link.

To celebrate this perfect holiday book, Zojirushi is offering one of our members a home bakery. One of the most used machines in my kitchen (outside of my oven and stovetop) is my Zojirushi BB-PDC20BA Home Bakery Virtuoso Plus Breadmaker. I use the dough setting for all my doughs - cinnamon rolls, bagels, breads, anything yeasted. It is a time and life-saver for me. I haven't baked a loaf in the machine yet or tried the jam setting but just for the dough setting alone it is this baker's dream machine.

Below are some of the technical specifics:

  • The Home Bakery Virtuoso® Plus Breadmaker bakes a traditional-shaped 2-lb. loaf of bread automatically. Dual kneading blades and additional heater on the lid ensures thorough kneading and even baking. Expanded healthy course options include Multigrain, Whole Wheat, Rapid Whole Wheat, Gluten Free, Salt Free, Sugar Free and Vegan.
  • Menu settings include: White, Whole Wheat, European, Multigrain, Gluten Free, Salt Free, Sugar Free, Vegan, Rapid White, Rapid Whole Wheat, Dough, Sourdough Starter, Cake, Jam and Homemade
  • 3 Homemade memory settings allow you to customize the knead, rise and bake times
  • Convenient 12-hour clock with 13-hour delay timer
  • European menu setting bakes light and savory breads that pair well with a variety of cuisines
  • Rapid courses allow you to bake a loaf of White or Whole Wheat bread in just 2 hrs. and 25 mins.
  • Includes a Liquid Measuring Cup, Nested Measuring Cups, Measuring Spoon and full color recipe book with 50 delicious recipes
  • Large viewing window to watch the process
  • cULus listed
  • Instruction manual and Recipe Book in English and French

I have been so busy using the dough setting that I didn't even realize there was a cake setting or sourdough starter! I have to try those features soon.

Also, I have heard nothing but good things about Zojirushis rice makers and have had one on my wish list for some time! This breadmaker looks awesome too.

    I'd make hot-dog rolls for my hot-dog connoisseur spouse. I have other helpful books by these people and use them often (vat of 5-minute bread in the fridge now). No question that I'd like the latest Zo breadmaker! I have one that is several years old and it's getting pretty beat up. (Maple oatmeal bread just came out a few minutes ago). Easy to use, I regularly use the dough and sourdough settings, as well as baking bread in the machine.

    I'd love to try their Fresh Brew Plus Coffee Maker with the Thermal Carafe. The recipe I'd love to try is the pretzel bun.

  • ChefcindyS  on  1/6/2019 at 6:20 AM

    Whole Wheat Brioche with Zojirushi Home Bakery Mini Breadmaker

  • Nrshelley  on  1/8/2019 at 5:24 PM

    The bread maker or the rice cooker and I'd love to make Pretzel buns for gourmet sandwiches.

  • cmartinfirvida  on  1/8/2019 at 7:33 PM

    Conchas! Que rico!

  • Chinjo  on  1/9/2019 at 6:58 PM

  • hirsheys  on  1/9/2019 at 7:00 PM

    Bagels! I'm so curious.

  • hirsheys  on  1/9/2019 at 7:02 PM

    I'd love one of the fancy rice cookers!

  • JLKelley  on  1/9/2019 at 8:15 PM

    I'd try making the Apple Fritters first (although the Crockpot cinnamon rolls are a close second!).

  • JLKelley  on  1/9/2019 at 8:35 PM

    I'd love to try one of their indoor electric grills.

  • Karla123  on  1/10/2019 at 5:52 PM

  • vikingcook  on  1/11/2019 at 11:01 AM

    The CrockPot cinnamon rolls sound delicious! I'd make those first.

  • Amandaspamanda  on  1/11/2019 at 2:12 PM

    Milk bread (big and tall) - I need a good fluffy loaf in my repertoire! Also, the Home Bakery Virtuoso® Plus Breadmaker would get a lot of mileage in my kitchen!

  • Jennifer7  on  1/11/2019 at 6:49 PM

    raspberry star

  • AnneOther  on  1/11/2019 at 8:26 PM

    I have a small Zojirushi rice cooker and if my house were on fire, I would go back in to save that little wonder. My dream is to own a Zojirushi bread machine and I've had my eye on the Home Bakery Maestro Breadmaker.

  • Kblg  on  1/11/2019 at 11:12 PM

    Chocolate raisins babka bundt!

  • dcradicrn  on  1/19/2019 at 11:50 PM

    I would make the Whole Wheat Brioche, because I love both things! I would love to receive the Zojirushi bread machine as a gift because it seems so broad in all the tasks it can tackle!

  • Mariarosa  on  1/20/2019 at 12:29 AM

    I would try the Semolina and butter swirl bread, and I'd love the Zojirushi Virtusoso Plus breadmaker.

  • thewoobdog  on  1/29/2019 at 8:48 AM

    I'd love to try either Amish-Style Milk Bread or the Swedish Tea ring. And honestly, I think I'd most love a Zojirushi rice cooker - the fact that Asian kitchens swear by rice cookers has me itching to get one! The Induction Heating Pressure Rice Cooker & Warmer NP-NVC10/18 would be my ultimate wish list item!

  • littleminxgirl  on  1/29/2019 at 7:37 PM

    I would try the buttermilk bread, YUM!

    Light whole wheat bread - I'd love to start making a good everyday bread. And I would love one of the Micom Rice Cooker & Warmers.
