Baking Artisan Sicilian bread at home

There truly isn't a difference in the recipe for Sicilian bread versus Italian bread. It's more in the shape of the bread and usually, Sicilian bread always tends to have sesame seeds on it. Being allergic to sesame seeds I keep them off. This recipe is from my grandmother who for all the years I knew her never measured when baking or cooking. Sure here and there she would weigh flour and things, but when it came to baking her bread or cooking dinner there was no such thing as measurements. Everything was by the sense. Sight, smell, and taste were the ones she always taught me to use while teaching me everything I needed to know to bake and cook. Her bread recipe was famous in the town of Catania in Sicily where she lived and even though she told everyone what it took to make her bread, no one could ever duplicate the taste. In today's video, I break down her recipe as best as I can.
