Behold, for it is risen!

... well, rising, anway.

When I was driving down to visit family over Christmas, I took a few podcasts of The Splendid Table with me to listen to in the car. One of the episodes features a new book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, which is all about a new technique for making bread at home. In short, you mix up a lot of a very high-moisture dough and let it sit in the fridge, using it as you need it. That's really the whole of the idea. The book has been getting quite a bit of press, so I thought I'd give it a try. I got the book from the library and mixed up a batch of dough this afternoon. I didn't get a chance to actually cook any up today, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity for this post title on Easter. I'll let you know how it turns out.

And wouldn't you know it, you can see the technique for yourself here, posted on YouTube by one of the authors of the book:
