It was Mother’s Day in the U.K. yesterday, so I thought what better way to celebrate My Special Day than to have one of my favourite meals (fondue*) that would showcase one of Tim’s best skills (making bread).
So I didn’t actually make this recipe, though I admired Tim’s handiwork when it was all done. I asked him how it went. He said ciabatta can be tricky, because the dough is incredibly wet and difficult to form. Once he mentioned it, I remembered a “Great British Bake Off” episode– it might have even been Ruby’s year– where they all struggled with the ciabatta task from “Scary Bread Guy” (what we called Paul Hollywood in Season 1).
Tim didn’t need to worry. It was delicious. We HOOVERED this bread up. The boys couldn’t Cget enough of it. We now have a second loaf, which we will enjoy just as much tonight.
This is another winner from Ruby Tandoh.
Spoiler Alert: The fondue uses a recipe from next month’s cookbook. Watch this space!
