Ciabatta Bread

Yup, more bread! Biga in action.....look at those gluten strands as this wet, unruly dough gets dumped on the table! With some gentle handling it gets slipped onto the baking sheet.....
After baking, it looks just like 'grandma's' slippers'.

This bread makes fantastic garlic bread!

That bread looks soooo good. Love to have a slice with a big slab of butter. I have to have you give me a lesson.

Could you share this recipe, or is it top secret? Enjoyed your classes while in Paris...now back home in Texas.
