Focaccia 2 The Rival!

Tried another Focaccia recipe today using 'leaven' - (Wild yeast) and fresh yeast.
We started with part 2 of the recipe first ( i.e. here's one I made earlier) type idea, because of time restrictions. So we were able to bake and taste the results. Yum Yum!
Then we started a new batch and finished it off at home.

This is the end result -

Potato and Rosemary Bread

The day started with a bit of humour when someone (who shall remain nameless )sent a recipe stating we needed 3 bulbs of garlic instead of 3 cloves!! We had enough garlic to feed the whole of Macc -
Well not really but we had a lot!!!.

things seemed a bit slow in the bread rising department, but it all turned out well in the end.

Focaccia Bread Day!

We had a go at making focaccia bread today - starting to act like we know what we are doing, hence trying more advanced bread - well different  bread anyway!
It's a lot wetter dough than the norm and struggled to add the recommended quantity of water.
Anyway here are a couple of pics - I think they look ok and I know one tastes ok!
