So last week we promised you the recipe for our focaccia we made during the holidays, and here it is! Slightly delayed, but we have been working on some other areas recently which are progressing really well, so not been able to blog for a few days. We will be letting you know soon what we have been up to though!
Back to focaccia. We love making this bread. Its one of our favourites! We have never met anyone that didn't love, so if you have never made it before, maybe its worth having a go? Of course there are many different recipes that can be used, but this one is the one we use the most.
This recipe uses a preferment of flour, water and yeast which is made in advance. The reason for this, is that it adds additional flavour from the fermentation, but also develops the gluten during fermentation, which helps the final dough by adding some strength to it. You should end up with a soft crust and nice open texture. We add olives to ours, but it also tastes great plain. Don't forget to top with rosemary and sea salt flakes to finish it off!
