This recipe for fougasse, the French version of the Italian focaccia bread, is topped with mixed herbs. The flat bread can be slashed to form shapes or the slits can be cut to form a lattice, making the bread easy to pull apart.
Savory, or summer savory, is an aromatic herb originating from southern Europe. Its scent resembles mint and thyme.
Used different ingredients. This was an easy, successful foray into breadmaking! It was delicious! I didn't have sea salt so I just used regular salt & added a little to the top before baking - it was just right! I'd make this for guests! - 14 Jul 2008
I made this bread this evening and it was delicious. I teamed it with Kristy's Chicken with tomatoes and green beans, another great recipe - 23 Jun 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. This is a great recipe, after you realise not to add the full 2 tablespoons of sea salt. 1 1/4 tablespoons of sea salt or coarse salt is enough. I actually used flavoured rosemary oil instead of the plain olive oil. Freezes exceptionally well. It is great if baked in a muffin tin too! - 14 Jul 2008
