Watch Chef John prepare classic Italian focaccia bread topped with rosemary and sea salt. This light, tender bread has a rich taste and texture. It's made with yeast, semolina flour, and bread flour, along with olive oil. You can top your focaccia slices with all sorts of toppings: chopped olives, caramelized onions, sliced grapes, and more. In the video, you’ll also see how to create the dimples in the bread. The dimples will create a better texture and help bake the bread faster and more evenly—and they'll also keep the toppings from rolling off the bread. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Focaccia. It's a great bread for soaking up sauces and dressings. See more Chef John videos >>
