Buon giorno....today I am making this fantastic ciabatta bread posted by Chef John at Food Wishes--get well soon John! Watch the video and go to his site for the recipe, it is so easy! Ciabatta in Italian means "slipper"--yes, the loaf, it's shaped like a slipper. (photo courtesy of the Chef John at Food Wishes blog)
I used 4 cups of all purpose King Arthur Flour, the recipe offers a variation.
I was going pazza because I didn't have cornmeal in the house...hmmmm, that's right, I did make polenta (recipe) last week.
I just want to mention here that I offer you links to my favorite ingredients ESPECIALLY if you can get them on Amazon Prime. I live a few miles from my local stores, so if I can save time and order online, I am so there! Now I have more time to write and cook. I look for recipes that are very similar to the ways that I prepare my food (since my methods are in my head) based on what I had learned while living in Italy many moons ago.
I encourage you to give this ciabatta bread recipe a try today!
