Default First food from the oven

Today was a great day, we finally got to fire up the oven and do some cooking. It wasn't without it's ups and downs due to the learning curve, but all in all went well. We started with pizzas, then I baked a few baby loaves of Ciabatta, and as we speak there is still a roast in there slowly cooking to perfection. Attached is the best looking pie of the day, it was cooked in about 60 seconds by my wife. Also there is a picture of my bread, which I was thrilled with, the spring and crust are just amazing, everything I hoped for.

Wow, no kidding about your "spring" on your Ciabatta! You can just see it. Did you spray and water in the oven before you put the loaf in to create steam or did it just expand nicely on its own?
Great job & welcome to the cooking club!, Dino

I sprayed the heck out of it...my goal was to follow the instructions in the ebook, but I may have went a bit overboard, lol.

Looks like you're off to a fantastic start!

I've been grooving on the ciabatta the last couple of days, too. There is a "glop" recipe over at the fresh loaf website that produces the most amazing results I've ever gotten with ciabatta with just about zero effort. I'm on batch #3 and can't get enough.

Is this the recipe Splat?

It looks excellent.

yep, that's it. It ROCKS. Quite possibly the easiest, best bread ever. I'm a really tough critic when it comes to bread, and that recipe makes better ciabatta than any I've ever eaten much less baked myself.
I have to get some semolina flour and try it with that.

I'll have to give that recipe a try. Have you made any adjustments for baking in a brick oven time and temp wise?
