Magico Food - 3 Ciabatta White Sourdough
|3 x 150g-200g
Besides the obvious (Ciabatta is an Italian bread), one difference between ciabatta and sourdough is the leavening agent.
Ciabatta uses a commercial leavening agent such as dry, instant, or fresh yeast, while sourdough does not.
It uses a natural culture of wild yeasts and acid to raise the bread.
The main difference between the loaves of bread comes down to the hydration levels.
Ciabatta is baked with a much higher hydration level,more water. .. making the holes within the dough much bigger than a baguette.
Ciabatta is also baked with a much stronger flour, which has a more delicate and sweet taste.
Slice ciabatta bread into thick slices or triangles and serve warm, as an appetizer alongside a small bowl of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. You can also use flavor the oil with chili flakes, basil, oregano, and garlic. Serve it with soup.
