Ciabatta, or “slipper” in Italian, is the perfect combination of rustic, country-style texture and delicate, exquisite taste. This traditional Italian-style bread boasts a chewy exterior and an airy, open crumb that’s speckled with tons of irregular air holes. Ciabatta was created to be used as a sandwich loaf, and we recommend putting ours to the test. Slice lengthwise, and pile it high with your favorite cheese and cured meats. It can also be used for dipping in soups and stews, grilled and drizzled with olive oil, or in your bread basket alongside a scoop of butter.
