Our best loved breads! Our Ciabattas have a golden, slightly chewy crust with a satiny moist interior. Its porous ivory crumb is perfect for sopping up sauces, soups and olive oil. Cut thick, it makes delicious sandwiches or Paninis. Hearth-baked in our European ovens, the ciabattas become the definition of perfectly balanced crunchy outside, soft and aromatic inside, in any flavor you choose! Originally developed in the Apulia region of Italy, this yeast-leavened loaf is called Ciabatta-literally "slipper"— in reference to its distinctive free-form shape.
