Garden Focaccia

I really loved the idea of the beautiful Garden Focaccia the first time I've seen it, and of course, I wanted to recreate it in my own way and of course all plant-based! It will not only amaze your loved ones with its look but with an incredible taste as well!

I'm so happy to share with you my variation of Garden Focaccia :)

But first, as usual, let's briefly take a look where this incredible food trend is coming from ;)

Focaccia is a flat, yeasted Italian bread similar in taste and texture to pizza dough. It's got a distinguished, almost tangy flavor that develops by letting the dough ferment in an overnight rise. It's usually baked on a baking stone(or sometimes a heavy skillet) to give it a crunchy exterior. A sprinkle of course salt is the original way of flavoring this bread, but it can be made in variations, including grape-rosemary and cracked black pepper. To get inspiration for your own focaccia art, here are some of the ways social media users are getting creative.

Teri of @vineyardbakerchanneled her "Vincent Vandough" in 2018 long before social distancing. Since bread baking on the rise, she decided to offer a tutorial for adults and kids alike on her website. Her mission: to offer inspiration in creating works of art on their focaccia with whatever's in the fridge. *source
