Yet Another Ciabatta


Home Favorite Sites Sourdough Bread Books Equipment Gallery BreadTips Techniques Recipes Comments



It was supposed to be baguettes this week but my son remarked that he loved Ciabatta best. I had badly wanted to try out a new couche but decided to humor him as I was feeling that the turning point in the battle to change my children's taste in bread has arrived. The biga for the Ciabatta was a good 24 hours old as I was away for a family gathering and there was no way I could have made the Ciabatta. Luckily some time in the fridge helped to slow it down.

I experimented with a new transfer method and a new baking regime. The result was less mess in the kitchen and 4 loaves of golden brown Ciabatte. The loaves were feather light when they came out of the oven and the aroma was just fantastic.

Now I have to figure a good way to do justice to the loaves. Butter or olive oil deep is not good enough for these loaves.
