Ciabatta, the famous Italian slipper. You can mass produced variation of this bread almost everywhere so it feels like it has been with us forever. But do you know that ciabatta is only 36 years old? In terms of bread history it is infancy! For me it doesn’t matter, I love this bread. It’s soft oily crumb, open texture. It is absolutely amazing when sliced, drizzled with olive oil and lightly grilled. It makes ideal base for bruschetta as well….
