First things first: Cookbook sensations Zoë François and Jeff Hertzberg are not married to each other. “We get that all the time,” said Francois with a laugh. “Although basically this is a second marriage, because we spend so much time together. Luckily, we get along really well. What’s really scary is that I think we’re starting to look alike.” The two met nine years ago — both had young kids taking classes at MacPhail Center for Music — and a conversation about bread snowballed into a publishing juggernaut. Their first title, “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day” came out in 2007 (it’s now in its 18th printing) and was followed two years later by “Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day” and last fall’s “Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day.” Combined, all three titles have sold nearly half a million copies. Expect to see two more François-Hertzberg collaborations, coming in 2013 and 2015.
