We're huge fans of Pinterest, are you? It can be intimidating, though. This week, Xandra shows us how easy it is to turn an ordinary pan of focaccia into Spring Art Focaccia.
Focaccia is simple to make although it does take a bit of planning. Cold, refrigerated dough is best. Plan to make it 18-24 hours in advance so it has time to rest.
Tools You Need to Make Spring Focaccia Art
No special tools required other than traditional baking supplies: A lovely bowl to mix the dough (and let it rest).
A Oxo Non-stick Pro 9 x 13 Cake Pan for baking.
Don't forget a cutting board to display your work of art and a serrated knife for cutting the spring art focaccia (because you absolutely DO WANT TO DESTROY this work of art).
For the veggies a handheld mandoline makes quick work of slicing onions and shallots.
How to Make Spring Art Focaccia
Gather your "art supplies." We used tomatoes, peppers, parsley, green onion shoots, and shallots. Prep & chop the veggies. Cut peppers into rings for flower petals. Slice shallot "flowers."
For the focaccia dough, we recommend these two sites for the simple recipe.
