When he wrote about Jim Lahey's bread in the New York Times, Mark Bittman's excitement was palpable: "The loaf is incredible, a fine-bakery quality, European-style boule that is produced more easily than by any other technique I've used, and it will blow your mind." Here, thanks to Jim Lahey, New York's premier baker, is a way to make bread at home that doesn't rely on a fancy bread machine or complicated kneading techniques.The secret to Jim Lahey's bread is slow-rise fermentation. As Jim shows in My Bread, with step-by-step instructions followed by step-by-step pictures, the amount of labor you put in amounts to 5 minutes: mix water, flour, yeast, and salt, and then let time work its magic--no kneading necessary. The process couldn't be more simple, or the results more inspiring. Here--finally--Jim Lahey gives us a cookbook that enables us to fit quality bread into our lives at home.

First time I have been successful with baking bread. So easy, simple and awesome. Bread is not heavy. Does not feel bloated with long rising recipes. A must-read and try the basic, whole wheat and variations.

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.
