Definition: Focaccia

An Italian flat bread traditionally brushed with olive oil and dusted with sea salt. Herbs (such as rosemary or sage), olives, and other spices can be added to create a tasty snack or accompaniment to soups or salads. The dough is related to modern pizza dough, and the finalized bread makes an excellent pressed sandwich.

I also want to add that if you use dried rosemary (like they are using in the picture), you will be bitterly and bloodily disappointed. Dried rosemary is one of those herbs that needs to be ground up or soaked, otherwise it's so pokey that it stabs your gums! No fun!

Foccacia is totally not hard to make - I have a recipe on my blog - here's a link! I really like to make mine with fleur de sel and minced fresh rosemary on top. I think it would also be yummy with pitted black olives studded through it though. I am now craving bread.

I'm not too crazy about focaccia. I can eat it alright, but there's definitely better bread out there.
