"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tblsp butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
2 cups bread flour
1 2/3 cup wheat flour
1 tblsp cocoa
1 tblsp granulated sugar
2 tsp instant coffee
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp (1 pkg) yeast

1/4 cup water
75 drops red food coloring
45 drops blue food coloring
30 drops yellow food coloring

cornmeal for dusting

If using a bread machine, all all of the ingredients for the dough in the exact order listed into the pan of your machine. Set it on "knead" and when the machine begins to mix the dough, combine the food coloring with 1/4 cup of water and drizzle it into the mixture as it combines. After the dough is created let it rest to rise for an hour.

If you are not using a bread machine, combine all the flours, cocoa, sugar, coffee ad salt in large bowl. Make a depression or "well" in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the warm water into the well, then add the butter, honey and yeast. Combine the food coloring drops with 1/4 cup water and add to the well. Slowly mix the ingredients with a spoon, drawing the dry ingredients into the well. When you can handle the dough, combine it by hand. Kneading the dough thoroughly for at least ten minutes, until it is very smooth and has a consistent color. Set the dough into a covered bowl in a warm place for an hour to rise.

When the dough has doubled in size, punch it down and divide it into 8 even portions. Form the portions into tubular shaped loaves about 8 inches long and 2 inches wide. Sprinkle the entire surface with cornmeal and place them on a cookie sheet. Cover the cookie sheet with plastic wrap and let the dough rise once morefor another hour in a warm location.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Uncover the dough and bake it for 20 to 24 minutes in the hot oven. Loaves should begin to darken slightly on top when done. Serve warm with butter on the side.
