So, I’ve got two bucket lists on the go. One for everyday living, and one for cooking. I’ve got this list typed up on my iPad and I’ve been meaning to post it up on my blog since the beginning. Clearly it hasn’t happened yet. But one day….
I just gotta find the ambition to type it out again.
Clearly, I’m lazy.
But then again, maybe I’m not all that lazy. I managed to find the time to tackle this beauty and cross it off the ‘ole list. Man, am I ever glad I found this recipe. It’s authentic, with a little added flare on my part. If you’ve never made bread (in any form) before, it takes time. It has to rest, and rise and rest and rise some more. I was so impatient for this one to be ready. All I wanted to do was dip it in oil and balsamic vinegar while it was still warm. But I had to wait…and wait….and wait.
The wait was more than worth it.
The original authentic focaccia recipe just called to top it with sea salt and olive oil, but I just had to make it my own. I made a nice herbed oil with garlic and Italian herbs and made sure every last inch and dimple in the bread had a healthy coating of it.
