Ciabatta

This Italian speciality, that originates from the northern Italian province of Lombardy, is crusty and has a marvellously light crumb structure. It is made with olive oil, which gives it a Mediterranean flavour and a soft, delicate texture. In 1982 a small band of dedicated flour experts got together to talk about dough. One of them, Arnoldi Cavallari, a miller in his late forties became especially excited. For years, Rome could only look on in horror as large-scale baguette imports from France threatened to monopolize the lucrative Italian sandwich industry. It was time to hit back with an equally commercially viable product. That’s how Cavallari came up with the Ciabatta Polesano. It was hailed as the bread that saved Italy, and since then it has rocked the sandwich world.
