ciabatta

[chuh-bah-tuh]

Utica Bread Ciabatta is made with a very high percentage of water, a long fermentation and multiple folds, yielding a large and lofty loaf. Our Ciabatta is delicious and citing with a crunchy crust and a light airy crumb. We don’t skimp on the California Olive Oil in this dough, leaving a fantastic floral, grassy background note of olives behind the deep wheat flavors of this authentic Ciabatta bread.

Ciabatta is a relatively modern bread, developed only in the late part of the 20th century. The idea of ciabatta was born out of a need to respond to the popularity of the Baguette. In just a few short decades, the popularity of Ciabatta has infinitely grown, as the demand for pressed sandwiches, or Panini has catapulted the awareness of this simply delicious bread.
