If someone cannot make this bread..then they fall into the moron category. If you like Ciabatta, yeasty breads, rustic - chewy loaves..try it...Bread ALWAYS intimidated me until I messed with this recipe. Now my kids make it. I have used 3 brands of bread flour, all purpose, wheat, white, I have let it sit for 8 hrs to 20 hrs..I have baked it at 450 & 500, it always comes out wonderful. I can't keep it in stock. You will NEVER go & buy a rustic loaf for dinner again! My kids call me to ask if they can use it on their sandwiches....This recipe can also be multiplied for a larger loaf or multiple loaves. I have sprinkled Italian herbs while folding, mixed in grated cheddar cheese, etc..have fun!
