  • About

This focaccia does require some hand-holding and needs tending to frequently, but the results really are worth the time spent. And, once you get the hang of it, the half-hourly turns won’t take you more than a minute. The success of this bread relies a lot on the heat of your oven, so make sure you only open the door briefly to put the bread in, so that you don’t lose too much heat. If you don’t want to use the flavourings, you could keep it plain by omitting the basil and tomatoes, and just top it with fresh rosemary and sea salt, as is traditional for focaccia.
