Panini bread (English Style)

... I know, but I love an English style panini, nothing like the thick bread you'd get given in Italy! Does anyone know if it's possible to find this bread in Switzerland?

Re: Panini bread (English Style)

'Panini' is plural, one would be 'panino'.

And it is the Italian word for sandwich, has nothing to do with the type of bread.

Re: Panini bread (English Style)

I believe that bread is nothing more than the half-cooked baguettes you get in plastic bags from the stores (the bake-at-home stuff), which you put in a sandwich press...

It's the Italian word for bloody Euro 2020 football stickers which require a child to spend a few hundred francs if they have any chance of filling a sticker album which gets dumped the minute the final whistle of the final has been blown.

Yeah I know, I know. Hence "English Style" Panini in English means nothing like what it means in Italian!

It's small ciabatta loaves (a very recent invention).

That's not a ciabatta...

Ciabatta is thick crust, sourdough, with large airy gaps. High gluten flower needed to achieve this...

I've certainly had a toasted sandwich made with ciabatta in the U.K.

It's difficult to see how chewy your crust is from a photo but Spinal seems to have managed it.

Re: Panini bread (English Style)

as I see it, it is in England executed Italian Panini, which is an Italan version of orginal english sandwich. So, you just have to decide which part is the one that is important for you?*
Flat bread? you can get many here, including different versions of Pita bread, ciabattas etc, both in baked nad pre-baked version, which should be probably what you are looking for? Just buy those vacuum packed pre-cooked "baguettes" that you get in any Denner, drop them in classic, heavy-lid toaster and voila...
Tasteless tomatoes? Any supermarket is full of them.
Fake mozzarella? Same as above.


*IMHO the most important part is sitting in cafe somewhere and enjoying the "cafe" food there. Hot-dog is really boring, but getting one or two after few hours of Ikea shopping is always a great experience.

Re: Panini bread (English Style)

Panini bread


vs Ciabatta bread


..... according to Tesco

Coop do a gluten free version by Schar but that's the closest I've found.

Anything fairly thin/flat (but fatter than pita) and without a crusty crust would probably do the job.

Isn't Balti, aka stir fry curry in a Balti, the real English / Punjabi fusion dish created in the Midlands? I studied at Birmingham University and enjoyed £1m baltis for lunch almost every day

I always assumed it originated in Baltistan. It was probably some cross-over/mix of Chinese and Pakistan cuisine.
Some say it was actually invented in Birmingham but I'm sure it was just a re-naming.
