About 8-9 years ago I was having lunch with my colleagues at my former job, and one of them had a sandwich that immediately caught my attention. It was focaccia! 🙂
Bread of Italian origin
Kathleen (my colleague) told me that she had an Italian aunt who had taught her how to make this bread. Her aunt insisted that it was made on an Italian bread/pizza stone because it was much better.
Focaccia is an Italian bread. Actually like a pizza but higher. Initially it comes from Liguria (the region around Genoa).
Make your own focaccia
In the absence of a brick oven or pizza stone, I baked the focaccia in a regular oven and a round flexible baking tin. Since I received the recipe, I make it very regularly. Usually, Sunday is the ideal day for this, and at noon we eat a nice piece of focaccia that is also well stuffed with all delicious food 😉
The advantage is that you can play with the ingredients. You can add other herbs, put olives on or in, …
What is good with focaccia?
If the focaccia is well seasoned, it doesn’t need anything on it, but we love to have it with lots of extra’s 🙂
- Sun-dried tomatoes
- Cocktail sauce or veganaise
- Vegan cheese
- Vegan spreads
- Tofu slices
- Slices of olive
- Homemade tapenade
Does this also look so good for you?
