Focaccia

This is a fellow scouser and IMO the top artisan baker in the UK with Mary Berry the doyen of home baking in the UK, if you watch and listen you will make the best focaccia ever.

Very instructive. Glad to see my preference for cool water confirmed.
And I thought I used a lot of olive oil!
Interesting to see all those Kitchen Aid mixers in the background.

I loved the accents. Oh yeah. The foccacia looked delicious. It takes confidence to make foccacia. I think it comes under the heading of "Artisan Bread."

A true masterpiece! Thanks Bolas. Loved that part in which Mary Berry asks for 2 more grams at the beginning...

Now I have to check all of these beautiful videos!

Bill mate I actually use more Evo before I put it in the oven. Times are hard at the BBC they could not afford the British Kenwood Chef Major

The Kenwood Chef Major certainly seems to be quite a machine.

Bolas, friend, your nose looks quite good for a fighter, though...

Bill mate I was given my Major as a wedding present in 1973, my Mums Chef is a 1959 A700d which looks just like the Kitchen Aid. My Mums was put into storage 15 yrs ago and I bet she would fire up first time.
