how to make bread like Columbus Bakery in Syracuse NY?
The Columbus Bakery in Syracuse NY makes excellent Italian bread. I would love to make something like it at home. I'm hoping someone here has had the bread and can point me in the right direction. For those who haven't sampled it, I'll try to describe it.
they have different shapes for sale but I think they are all made from the same dough. I can't find a picture of a cut loaf to share. The second photo in this article is the best I could find.

The crumb is soft and pillowy, not chewy. The crust is hard, has some physical depth and is not shiny. The only ingredients are flour, yeast, water and salt.
