For the Ciabatta, I started with a poolish the night before. This would form the basis of the dough the next day. This is a fairly wet dough, so it can be a little sticky, but it was still pretty easy to work. I ended up making 3 loaves, though because I only have a round pizza stone, I ended up baking two loaves first, and the last loaf by itself. This actually worked out pretty well, as I accidentally degassed one loaf while shaping and the extra proofing time allowed it to get back up to a similar size as the other loaves.
All in all, I was pretty pleased on how the loaves turned out. The crust had a nice golden touch to it, and the bread had good structure on the inside. My girlfriend and co-workers all really enjoyed it. It was a perfect compliment to the meal below:
