Focaccia…Your Way…….

I love making Foccacia dough.....That bit when you wiggle and stretch your fingers, ready to play Mozart's 5th symphony in A flat minor, straight into the heart of the waiting dough, epic, do it now.... Theres something therapeutic about making a really beautiful focaccia...Knocking it back, playing the piano and rustling up beautiful ingredients to adorn it with. Get involved and feel free to play around with the toppings you won't regret it...Great fun to tear this up and share with all your friends and family... Grazia Italy....
