Learning Italian – Ciabatta

Italian (as one of the love languages) is not known for its straight forward approach to expression. There are wonderful exceptions to this rule and the word ciabatta is one of them. Yes, lyricism meets reality in the form of bread. Eaten by millions around the world and so named because its shape resembles the footwear beloved by nonnas and beach goers alike.

Sandal/slipper/flip-flop

Ciabatte (‘e’ is the plural form of ‘a’, like adding an ‘s’ to the end of words)
