I don’t often make bread, so it’s not one of my strong points when it comes to baking, but it’s something I love so I’m determined to try to do it a little bit more often. For this one we used the recipe and method on the BBC Food website for Rosemary and Sea Salt Foccacia. The ingredients and method are all up on their website here, for everyone to have a look at, so I won’t retype it all.
Unlike my previously baking mini disaster of using expired yeast, I remembered to purchase some fast action yeast for future efforts and am pleased to report there were no more rising related difficulties!
Bread is really fun to make, and its great to take out any frustrations on kneading and knocking back the dough – very therapeutic! This recipe was pretty simple, although a little time consuming because of the proving. I’m definitely going to try some different variations on the foccacia. I have roasted garlic and red onion in my mind, I’m salivating just thinking about it….. My hubby and I manged to hoover up most of the bread in one sitting with a little dish of olive oil and balsamic vinegar!
Happy eating 🙂
