In this post, we’re gonna be making Focaccia, which in my opinion is one of the best breads there are out there. This Italian bread is nice and crunchy on the outside and light and airy on the inside.
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve worked at an Italian restaurant for 3 years and for a whole year I had to make Focaccia every morning, so it is safe to say I have learned a few things and I will be sharing every step in this video. I am very passionate about bread making and every step is important for what you get in the end. From the sponge to how long you mix the dough, everything will affect your final bread.
Focaccia is a very simple bread, it doesn’t need many ingredients but it has a very delicate dough and it needs to be handled carefully. But once it is done, the amazing smell of fresh bread, that beautiful crunch on the outside but a light and airy inside is to die for! My favorite thing to do was to spread some mascarpone on it and top it with salami slices, sounds weird but I swear it is good. Focaccia can be the base of a sandwich, something to help you clean the sauce off your pasta bowl or to simply start a meal, dip it in some olive oil and enjoy!
