I am really new to this website. I came across it last Friday while looking for sites about how to make an outdoor bread oven. What a wonderful site!! I have been making bread for about 25 years on and off, but I had never made ciabatta. I had found a recipe on the BBC Food website and deciced to try it last weekend. If it hadn't been for all the fantastic information I found on this site, I'm sure it would not have worked. Thank you very much to all those people who have posted advice about ciabatta. I hope to post here regularly.
