We’d like to think that we are “up” on current trends even if we decide not to participate (like pants that you wear around your knees instead of your hips or waist) but every once in a while something seems to have slipped past us completely without even a whisper. Given our combined parental and work responsibilities, we shouldn’t be surprised but none-the-less it does make one feel a teensy bit older and out of touch when it happens…
No-Knead-Bread is the latest craze we missed. Apparently this ingenious way of making bread was touted in a 2006 New York Times article, followed recently by a book called Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. We found out about it from our friends over at Home & Cooking just last week.
Here’s a snapshot courtesy of us, your increasingly more out of touch DINKs, of what this is: Basically, No Knead Bread it is a method of making bread for lazy (or time-pressed) people. And it works. No gory details here…you can find plenty of those using any of the links we provide below. But we can attest to the claims of ease of use, and will likely make many more loaves this way experimenting with different flavors (rosemary or Olive & Parmesan for example).
When it comes to nifty kitchen tricks like this, these old dogs say “better late than never”.
