Ciabatta
Ciabatta is known for its high proportion of water to flour, and the amount of water gives the bread its rough, slack shape (ciabatta means “slipper” in Italian). Here is where the additional ounce or two of water is going to make a drastic difference in the way you manipulate the dough, and in the bread’s final appearance: The interior structure will be a lovely network of large holes surrounded by lacy strands of bread. I am known for my big, domed ciabatta, which I introduced to the New York City marketplace way back in the 1990s as a cornerstone of my bread-making business—but the easiest ciabatta shape to manage is the familiar long, flat rectangle, which can serve for making all kinds of sandwiches or for dipping into hearty soups and stews. The dough itself can also be the basis for pizza dough and even crackers. Making ciabatta for the first time may feel like an impossibly sticky and messy process, but have faith and don’t be scared—the work is worth the results, as ciabatta is a true plea-sure to behold and an even greater pleasure to eat.Excerpted from One Dough, Ten Breads, © 2016 by Sarah Black.

Prosciutto, Arugula, and Tomato Sandwich
Here in the States we have the good old BLT sandwich, but in Italy, they serve a PAT instead — prosciutto, arugula, and tomato. This is just as easy to make, and if you're a fan of prosciutto (as I am), this sandwich is a real winner.

Here’s a delicious starter that’s a twist on the traditional Italian Caprese salad. Like an Italian with an exotic accent. People can get rather anxious about meddling with the purity of real, fresh buffalo mozzarella (not least because it can be a bit pricey) but we assure you that you won’t regret this meddle.

While kids are usually adverse to vegetables, they're more likely to enjoy them when they've been given a little bit of a flavor treatment from a barbecue. Chef David Seigal of Chelsea's Table likes to grill his and serve them on a sandwich with a homemade goat cheese spread, and the kids really enjoy it.

Ciabatta
Ciabatta is a flat, rustic Italian bread that is substantially wider and flatter than a regular loaf. Its Italian translation is “slipper,” which is indicative of its baked shape. It is made in almost every region of Italy, with each region having its own style. Depending upon the locale, the texture can range from a firm, slightly tough crust and a soft, chewy interior to a very crisp crust with a light, holey interior. Ciabatta dough can be seasoned with salt, olives, herbs, or extra-virgin olive oil, each of which will change its texture somewhat. If made with whole-wheat flour, it is known as ciabatta integrale; with milk, ciabatta al latte. In the United States, ciabatta is most often made with a sourdough starter and a very wet dough that produces a sour-tasting loaf with a very open crumb. No matter the style, ciabatta makes an excellent sandwich loaf and is often used to make panino, the classic grilled Italian sandwich.
