091112 My First Ciabatta - SteveB's Ciabatta Using Double Flour Addition and Double Hydration Techniques
I tried SteveB's double flour addition/double hydration techniques to make his ciabatta, one of the three beautiful breads I promised myself to learn from some of the most sophiscated, well-respected home bakers here at TFL when I first started making bread back in February this year. Since then I'd tried dmsnyder's baguettes and Susan's ultimate sourdough. I've always tried my best to emulate the orginal formulas so that my breads would not 'disgrace' the beautiful creations by these bakers. My ciabatta is no comparison to Steve's picture perfect creation, but at least I can say 'I've tried it'. Thank you, Steve, for your inspiration of pursuing professional quality breads from a home kitchen.
