My first Ciabatta.
Wahoo! Edible too :-)
Want bigger holes. Have to make more.
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.
Congratulations Frank, it looks delicious. Cool knife, too.
Looks like that would make great sandwiches! Keep us posted on your quest for open crumb.
What recipe did you use for this? It looks great!
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.
