Ciabatta Range

Ciabatta is an Italian white bread, and can be found in nearly every province of Italy with slight variations from region to region. The literal translation of the word is ‘slipper’ due to its shape.

At IL FORNAIO our Ciabatta and Panini’s are one of our most prestigious products, naturally only the finest ingredients contribute to Sebastiano and Giuseppe’s tried and tested authentic family recipe.

After a 24-hour process of fermentation where the distinct Italian flavour of the olive oil infuses with the fermenting yeast and wheat of the mixture.

The next step is the complex yet simple stage of rising or proving, allowing the formation of gas bubbles to be trapped within the matrix of the dough.

After being placed on their own cloth bed setters to prove the final stage is to stone bake the Ciabatta dough, providing the Ciabatta with the characteristics of a light open crumb structure with a thin and crispy crust.

Focaccia Range

Focaccia belongs to the northern shores of the Mediterranean and has its origins within antiquity. Focaccia is essentially an Italian flatbread made with yeast and olive oil.

Following the baking process our Focaccia breads are then bathed in extra virgin olive oil providing an improved quality of the finished product with a golden outer crumb.
