A follow up on the no-knead bread in today's NY Times. Includes a video and two recipes, one for Speedy No-Knead Bread and the other for Fast No-Knead Whole Wheat Bread.
It makes me think of the technique from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, though even skipping the refrigeration step.
Hey I've seen the videos for these, and although I am pretty much off white flour in general, I have to say those look FANTASTIC. I would love to experiment with it quite a bit. Although I find kneading theraputic, sometimes its a pain if you don't have enough flour quite incorporated and when your kneading it starts to stick to everything, but you don't want to over due it, and make it too dry, so yeah this definetely sounds good. I need to order a La Cloche.
I saw that article too. Frankly, I don't bake NK's that often any longer but it was fun to read. It was particularly gratifying to find out that Jim Lahey has a book contract - I feel wrong people are reaping the benefits of his labors.
