"You're in America now," I said. "Our idea of diplomacy is showing up with a gun in one hand and a sandwich in the other and asking which you'd prefer."

Ciabatta (Bread)

This super simple, super easy bread recipe makes a 2 pound loaf of Ciabatta. It litterally takes about two minutes of your time. There is a good deal of waiting involved.

Cost: ~78 cents. (As of March 2010.)



  1. Mix the water and yeast.
  2. Add the flour and salt. Mix swiftly, but don't over do it.
  3. Dump on a greased pan.
  4. Cover and let rise for 8 hours.
  5. Cook at 400 degrees F for about 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Let cool for 10 to fifteen minutes before slicing for cleanest cutting.

To shorten rising time, it can be kept in the oven at a very low temperature. That will cut the rising time in half.
