Quick Demo


a) Toasted Ciabatta - To toast the ciabatta just drizzle in extra virgin olive oil and either toast in a scorching hot griddle pan or place under the grill and broil until crispy.
b) Pesto Mayo - Check out my recipe for Pesto Mayo, alternatively you can just use pesto!
c) Make Ahead - I tend to make these fresh, just the bread is warm and toasty. If you're not toasting the bread you could make these ahead of time, just be conscious of how oily the ingredients are. Important to pat dry before stacking or the oil will seep into the bread as they rest.
