Product Description

Waitrose Plain Ciabatta
Expertly made to an Italian style recipe,using 4% Italian extra virgin olive oil. Hand-shaped and stone-baked for an authentic light, airy crumb and crisp, floury crust. Best served warm.

Distinctive to the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, ciabatta resembles a well-worn slipper. This light and airy bread was created to accompany the regions rich pasta and meat dishes. After rising, the dough must be handled with a very light touch "like a baby" as Italians say, to prevent the precious air bubbles being knocked out.

Product has changed

This used to be a really good ciabatta, but along with the change in packaging the loaf is now really flat and a shadow of its former self. Such a shame.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


Good flavour, nice open texture, warmed up well, was not dry or over crusty and tasted brilliant!

These went mouldy the next day, well before they're used by date and they weren't even opened!
