Ciabatta !

Ciabatta is a favorite of all bread lovers ! It's wonderful light, airy crumb just invites breaking and biting. I started using the bread machine about an year ago, and has been quite successful with it. But baking a crusty rustic bread has always been the real goal. So recently, I have started experimenting with oven baking.

Ciabatta requires a starter and a very wet dough. I found a quite straight-forward recipe and was delighted at the result. The outside was uneven but with proper crust.

The inside, was a near perfect crumb.

And a close-up.

This was delicious and simply melted the mouth.
