Nancy Silverton's rustic bread (ciabatta)
I saw an old repeat of Nancy Silverton's appearance on the Julia Childs show. (Wow, could she handle dough, but her grape method of making sourdough starter is loony!). Her rustic bread (ciabatta) looked delicious. Anyone make it, or make her famous olive bread, for that matter?
Also, I found this conversion of fresh yeast (which Nancy uses) to instant yeast: 10 gms fresh or 1/3 ounce fresh = 3.5 gms or 1/8 ounce or 1 1/2 tsp. instant. Sound right?
