In the category of harmless and weird behaviors, I have a secret to share with you. Whenever I make a loaf of bread out of my old, dog-eared copy of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, I whisper to myself, "There are two ways to develop gluten in bread. Kneading or time." And time is the secret to the recipes in this book, along with some other handy-dandy tips and tricks that will get you to delicious, fresh, and warm out-of-the-oven bread, with or without gluten.
