I love to bake.
I hate cleaning and laundry with the undying fire of a thousand suns. . .
but I love baking.
I lived in Italy for almost a year and a half and fell in love with the breads. Especially Ciabatta. It is my new goal to lean how to bake it. It takes some planning because you use a biga – a starter – so you can’t just throw the recipe together. The above picture is my second attempt.
The first was frightening. Luckily I have family willing to sacrifice and eat the trial versions.
It still isn’t quite right. The crust is better (yum), but the interior needs to be more open and airy.
I will be trying again!
