Learn to make ciabatta Nov 21

A loaf of ciabatta bread looks so rustic and simple that one could assume it was created by Italian monks around 1400 or so. In fact, ciabatta was invented in 1982 by a Verona baker who named the loaf (ciabatta means slipper) because he thought the shape resembled his wife’s favorite footwear. In the intervening 35 years, ciabatta has become a favorite worldwide.

Sarah Newton will demonstrate the steps to making the chewy, crusty loaf at the 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 21, Breads of the World class at the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Idea Studio. The class is free and open to adults and teens age 13 and older. Registration is required and begins at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, November 7, at the Calendar.

Newton is the library’s youth services coordinator. She’s a serious foodie, canner and baker.

There is one class remaining in the Breads of the World series: Danish aebleskiver on December 19. Online registration starts at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 5.
