Lahey's "breathtaking, miraculous, no-work, no-knead bread" ( Vogue ) has revolutionized the food world.

Inspired by the ancient art of Italian bread making, Jim Lahey developed artisanal bread that is entirely his own and soon can be yours. It takes only a pot to create what Mark Bittman in the New York Times calls "the best no-work bread you have ever made." The method, which captured worldwide attention, is practically foolproof and allows the home baker to let the dough rise slowly, without any kneading or fuss, and then bake it in a heavy, preheated pot. Lahey also shares the fun of making his inventive recipes for classic breads like the rustic Italian baguette, the stirato, and his famous pizza bianca. With stepby-step instructions and full color photographs of finished loaves, My Bread is perfect for home cooks who have always wanted to make beautiful, deeply flavored bread but found traditional recipes dauntingly complicated.

I use his standard bread recipe for a lot of my breads now, and it is always excellent. I found he was a bit rigid regarding other techniques, but his recipes are very good.
