Jam and bread

27 September 2011 § 5 Comments

This was breakfast today, washed down with a perfect latte. But it was bittersweet and tinged with sadness.

You are probably wondering how can wonderful bread make you sad? It is because we are down to our last loaf. The freezer that was full of my dad’s frozen baked goods has been emptied faster than if it had been attacked by a plague of locusts.

That is the problem with good bread, it gets eaten too quickly.

I am still trying to get this ciabatta recipe out of my dad, Baz the Baker. So far, he has not been forthcoming – I was thinking this post might prompt him to send it to me.  It is an adaption of recipe from the über lord of bread – Dan Leader of the upstate bakery, Bread Alone.

This ciabatta is perfect consistency – light and airy with a very faint taste of olive oil.

Hannah at the lovely blog, Blue Kale Road, is a good sharer and here is her recipe for a delicious blackberry compote, that would go so well with this bread. Now if only we had some left.

Ciabatta recipe will follow as soon as I can get my hands on it.

    Thank you for your kind words, Lisa! I’m so happy to be part of your blog post.

    I do hope your dad is enticed to share his ciabatta bread recipe…there are many of us who would enjoy attempting to bake such a gorgeous, delicious loaf as you have pictured here. I remember when he wrote his guest post and enjoyed it. 🙂

  • Would love to meet your dad one of these days – and taste his delicious breads! Bread Alone is one of our regular stops at the Greenmarket.

    Pressure! Keep the loving familial pressure on. . .Dad might yield the recipe if he knows all of us are waiting so hopefully. . . at least I hope so.
    I loved his earlier post!

    I am involved in a school project in which we create an original magazine, and I was wondering if I could use the photograph of bread in my magazine. Thank you.
