Every culture has their bread, French baguettes, Indian na’an, Mexican tortillas…and in Italy it is focaccia. Focaccia is a flat bread that is moist and tender on the inside and the crust has a satisfying crunch from the olive oil.
I’ve made this focaccia for many different occasions. One of my favorite memories is making this one Saturday afternoon “just because.” We had friends over and were sitting in the backyard chatting. I had started the dough before they arrived, then excused myself at one point to put it in the oven. Were they ever surprised when I brought out a plate stacked with warm squares of Rosemary Sea Salt Focaccia oozing olive oil and goodness!
