What is No Knead Bread?
For those of you unfamiliar with no knead bread, it’s a way of making delicious artisanal loaves of bread without having to knead it at all. It was made famous by baker and owner of the Sullivan Street Bakery, Jim Lahey and it’s really taken hold of home bakers everywhere. Instead of kneading, you just have to let the dough rise and rest for a long time – 12 to 18 hours. That time is sufficient to develop the gluten necessary for bread. Then, you bake it in the oven in a cast iron pot, creating an oven within an oven, and you end up with a fantastic looking loaf, full of flavor. When you make sun-dried tomato no knead bread, however, you’ll get even more flavor and a true rustic bread to serve as a sandwich or just next to your delicious dinner.
