'Kneadlessly Simple' on Serious Eats

Knead the Book: Kneadlessly Simple

When browsing through Needlessly Simple by Nancy Baggett, I realized it was a completely different version of no-knead from the one that became immensely popular and no doubt resulted in the sale of many a cast iron Dutch oven.

Cook the Book: 'Kneadlessly Simple'

I'm not sure where the stress goes, but I sure hope Nancy Baggett's last name is pronounced "baguette." For an author who's made it her mission to demystify breadmaking, it would be only fitting.
