Frank,


Your ciabatta looks great!  And the crumb is just right. 


If you'd like another recipe to try, you might enjoy this one -I had immediate success with it

Nice job, Frank.  Seems everyone wants "bigger holes" but I like the crumb as pictured in your images.  If the tast and texture suit  you, remember how you did this one as your continue experimenting toward the big hole objective.

Looks like that would make great sandwiches! Keep us posted on your quest for open crumb.

The book in the background is The Bread Baker's Apprentice.  It came from there.  page 130 something, poolish version.


 


It took a while to make, but the hands on time wasn't long at all.
