I am enjoying the book more than I ever imagined that I would. The Challah was relatively straight forward. The instructions are easy to follow. I choose the three stranded braid. I amazed to see that some people actually braided into a ball. It was a lovely loaf, not as sweet as Challah that I have had.

I am anxious to reach Ciabatta. I can't really see me making many of the breads that we have made so far on a regular basis. We don't buy that much butter. But to learn how to make Ciabatta and maybe even some of the varieties presented. What a great summer activity.


  1. Ciabatta and pizza were the reasons why I signed up. The challah was definitely a nice change of pace from the 2 day ones we have been having.

    Looks beautiful!

  2. Jeff, I made the poolish ciabatta yesterday. My family loved it but I wish that I had watched some of the youtube videos first. I think that it could have been wetter. I am going to try all of the recipes.
