Ever since Sheri helped me with marbled rye, I've been on a bread mission. My first solo attempt was the multgrain extraordinaire, and I need to make that again because it's excellent toasted for sandwiches. Then I made focaccia, which Gary and I both loved. I decided that I like the book that it came from, so I should try some other recipes.
I buy the ciabatta from Central Market regularly. It's deliciously chewy and full of holes. I had no idea whether I'd be able to recreate it or not, especially with my limited bread baking experience.
The recipe was easy to follow, and the bread is very good. Not as good as Central Market's but I'm willing to keep trying and see what happens.
p.s. This would make an excellent Big Tomato Sandwich!
