    When I learned that the recent editions of this book listed ingredients by weight, I bought the kindle edition. There are a few additions but the basic recipes have not been changed except for weights, The all-purpose flour weight for this recipe is 2 pounds or 920 grams. Also the yeast is reduced to 1 tablespoon.

    Finally tried this. Followed their directions pretty much to the T the first time, except had to bake longer. Loaf was dense. Second time I let rest much longer before baking - about 1 1/2 hours and the last 20 minutes was in my warming drawer. The bread came out great!

    p 26 I finally get great bread after baking the risen bread directly on a pizza stone on the lowest oven rack. I preheat a La Cloche top only along with the stone and cover the dough with the top for 15 minutes, remove the top and move the bread directly to a top rack for 20 mins. This avoids a burned bottom crust and nicely browns the top. When you remove the bread from the oven you will hear the bread snap and crackle as it cools, a wonderful sound. http://www.splendidtable.org/recipes/five-minute-artisan-bread

    Fast & easy. Great crust. My everyday bread recipe. I cook it in a Le Creuset dutch oven.

    Unbelieveably easy and delicious. This recipe has changed my thinking about baking bread.

    ..the instructions were explicit, yet simple, and though they’re long… the method really was very quick and effortless. The freshly baked loaf was… crusty exterior and perfectly baked inside.
