Jolee's Kitchen is back! To kickoff another round of tasty dishes, today we're bringing you a homerun hit recipe: Sourdough Focaccia. This bread can be enjoyed by itself, dipped in oil and balsamic vinegar, or as an accompaniment to your main course.
We have paired this crave worthy focaccia with our 2018 Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon - a perfect pairing. Enjoy!
We will all remember 2020 for something different. I will remember it for when I started baking sourdough with my own starter. I’ve been feeding that little jar of goo and keeping it in my fridge since April of 2020, always ready to bake my next loaf. There are so many things you can make besides bread, but this focaccia is one of the things that I use my starter for.
I first made this bread for a dinner I had with a few friends this year, and brought the extra to our Tasting Room for everyone to try. Courtney fell in love with it instantly and insisted that I make it for Jolee’s Kitchen. So here it is!
This is not something you are going to make last minute. You actually need to start thinking about it the day before, that is the worst part. Besides that, it is super easy to make, just takes time. After you've made it and are ready to add your toppings, don’t feel like you have to use the ones I have chosen. Make it your own! Use any herbs, vegetables, and bougie seasonings you like. I think this would be awesome to cut in half and make a sandwich with. I probably would use a pesto mayo, add chicken, cheese, a slice of tomato and lettuce.
Share with us the different ways you topped it, I'm always looking for new ideas.
