In Focus

DSCF5403In ancient Rome, panis focacius was a flatbread baked in the ashes of the hearth (focus in Latin). This became a diverse range of breads that include focaccia in Italian cuisine, and fougasse in Provence.

Fougasse is traditionally shaped and slashed to resemble an ear of wheat. This one, with olives and oregano, was made using Bob’s sourdough starter
