Focaccia


Made Peter Reinhart's focaccia recipe again up in Maine this weekend. I didn't have Bread Baker's Apprentice with me, so I followed VeganYumYum's poolish version to the letter... except that, not only did we did we not have any bread flour (all purpose, gah?), we didn't even have a scale. I know, right? Shockingly, as OCD as I usually am about those kind of details... I was pretty sure that this recipe is so incredible that it's basically impossible for such things to make much of a dent in the final product. I was quite pleased to be proven right on this score... it was just as delicious as our first attempt.

This really is an awesome recipe that basically needs to be tried by anyone who even remotely likes bread.
