Watch Chef John prepare a whole wheat version of his classic ciabatta bread. It’s actually a 50-50 blend of whole wheat and white flour. For extra flavor, nutrition, and texture, you’ll add a little honey, flax seeds, polenta, and sunflower seeds. Timing is key here. And Chef John will show you how to prep your dough for best results. You’ll also see how to get that classic shiny, crusty artisan-bread appearance. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Whole Wheat Ciabatta.
