No, seriously. I looked in the Bread Bible, only to learn that Rose Levy Berenbaum had to try ciabatta nine times before she figured it out. What chance did I have?
It was easy. Well, easy may be a bit of an overstatement. But because I had the Bible, I was able to make some delicious, airy ciabatta. (Also, I've been weighing my ingredients. I think it really helps.) I cannot recommend this book enough. Buy it.
