Rose Levy rocks my bread baking world!

I was so excited to get a start on the recipes in The Bread Bible, and after Brandon said he wanted something with a good crust and airy body, I couldn't help but go to page 357 for Ciabatta. The last time I made Ciabatta was the recipe from King Arthurs Whole Grain Baking and that didn't turn out the way I wanted it too. So two days prior I made the biga for the recipe and I was a little less than optimistic since I am always afraid that the end product would be a diaster, especially with breads that take that long to make. Thankfully, it turned out wonderful. I will post the recipe some time this weekend.


Sliced and served with mesquite roast chicken - Yum!

I wish you all the best at culinary school.

I absolutely love ciabatta bread but never mustered the courage to try making it but your post has inspired me. I look forward to the recipe. Thanks.
