This weekend I had a big project... making ciabatta bread. Yes, for once, I would not let my bread machine do all the work.

And it was not so much a lot of work as a lot of waiting. 24 hours for the poolish to proof, then the mixing, then 3 hours for the dough to double, then a bit of work, then another 2 hours, and then the 20 minutes baking. Wow... I'm glad the waiting and the working paid off.

I now have 3 nice, tasty and crusty ciabatta breads that will make wonderful sandwiches this week (heck... if that's what it takes to make me bring my lunch at work, well so be it!)
