Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day distills the renowned baking instructor' s professional techniques down to the basics, delivering artisan bread recipes that anyone with flour and a fridge can make and bake with ease.

Reinhart begins with the simplest French bread, then moves on to familiar classics such as ciabatta, pizza dough, and soft sandwich loaves, and concludes with fresh specialty items like pretzels, crackers, croissants, and bagels. Each recipe is broken into "Do Ahead" and "On Baking Day" sections, making every step--from preparation through pulling pans from the oven–a breeze, whether you bought your loaf pan yesterday or decades ago. These doughs are engineered to work flawlessly for busy home bakers: most require only a straightforward mixing and overnight fermentation. The result is reliably superior flavor and texture on par with loaves from world-class artisan bakeries–and all with little hands-on time.

If using a mixer, use the paddle attachment and mix on the lowest speed for 2 minutes. If mixing by hand, use a large spoon and stir for about 2 minutes. The dough will be sticky, coarse, and

smoother. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes. Continue to mix with the dough hook on medium-low speed, or mix by hand, for 3 minutes, adjusting the water or flour as needed to form a smooth, firm, but slightly tacky ball of dough. If the dough is very tacky or sticky, add more flour. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead for 1 minute to make any final adjustments. Form the dough into a ball and place it in a clean, lightly oiled bowl. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic

the chocolate (using either the sheet method or the sprinkle method), then roll the dough into a log. Using a metal pastry blade, cut the log down the middle lengthwise. Cross one piece over the other, then continue to crisscross the pieces in both directions to form a braid for more on 2-braid loaves).

factor is oven size. So even if you’re able to make a perfect baguette shape as long as 3 feet, it’s likely that your oven won’t be able to handle it. For this reason, the instructions that follow are for 10-ounce (283 g) baguettes designed for home ovens and baking stones. Using a basic baguette shape, you can also create épis, which have a zigzag shape resembling a stalk of wheat. Since this is done just prior to baking, see under Scoring, for instructions on shaping épis. To shape a baguette,
