  • Ciabatta or baguettes first?

    Hey Bakers,

    Today I am baking Ciabatta and Baguettes (and some rye later!)

    What needs hotter temps, which should go in the oven first? Ciabatta or Baguettes?

    Thanks!

    Baguettes!!! Definitely the baguettes! At 550 hearth temp they should be done in 15 to 20 min at most. The ciabatta should be a softer and lighter bake.

      Dutch,


      Agreed. Baguette definitely likes the hotter temp, and Ciabatta should have a lower, slower bake. Got into a bit of trouble the other day with some Baguette dough that was really, really ready, but the hearth was at 675 F. No choice; had to go for it. Baked perfectly in four minutes flat; no charring. Amazing.

        Four minute baguettes! Unbelievable. That needs a patent I think. How high a hydration dough was that to resist that hot a hearth.
        I'm not worthy, I don't have the guts to get them in at that kind of temp. You must have just got the oven steamed and then had to vent it! Most places don't make pizzas that fast!
