“I have been baking communion bread for our local chapel for a couple of years. I thought it might make you chuckle that there has been a rise in comments on the bread texture and flavour since I have been using your Ciabatta. All the comments were of course favourable! Thank you for inspiration ”B. Orwell
Not just for the Christmas season - a great pleaser with any cheese.
