411..information please? New Orleans..
I need to draw from all the expertise in the group. We are getting ready for our annual rafting trip on the Deschutes River. Each year we have a theme for the weekend, this year it's Mardi Gras. All of us contribute portions to our meals, and of course..part of mine is the bread. Menu challenge : Muffaletta.
I've looked back on past posts with no luck. I've seen muffalettas that are round loaves of good height, somewhat hollowed out and then filled with olive tapenade, meats and cheese. The top placed on like a lid. Wrapped in foil and left to "ripen" for a few hours, then sliced in wedges. Looking up muffaletta bread on Wikipedia, it looks more like a round foccacia type bread, not much height and with sesame seeds.
Does anyone have any direction for me? Thanks,
