I am just beginning to cook more seriously, I would not say i have a specialty yet. (Although I make a pretty good focaccia). I do make chili quite often during football season and take alot of pride it that as well. I'm always trying new recipes so if you know of a good one let me know!

welcome on board. I love foccacia but haven't made one myself yet. I cook more Asian food but trying to learn food from other countries.

You should make the focaccia, it is really easy and doesn't take that long. Asian cooking is something i know very little about, so of course I'm very interested in learning about it.

I really want to try making foccacia one of these days. Have been in my mind for quite sometime. What do you usually eat it with? If you like to learn some Asian cooking, I have put up quite a number of recipes that I personally cooked at home. They are easy to cook. There are pictures to follow. You can head to Misc section, then Ethnic section and look for the thread 'Delicious, easy, simple Asian recipes' or you can also check it out at Keep Learning Keep Smiling for more. I'll be most happy to help if you have any questions.

Cheers,
shalinee

Thank you Shalinee for the Keep Learning Keep Smiling website. I've only browsed it so far but it looks great! As for the foccacia I usually end up eating all of it fresh out of the oven with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It would be nice to have leftovers for a sandwich.

foodie4life, thanks for your compliments. I'm wondering how you eat the foccacia bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Do you brush the mixture over it or use it as a dipping sauce?

I mince garlic into the balsamic vinegar and olive oil, then dip the bread into it, it is very simple but very good. I have a great focaccia recipe if you are looking for one. (although it is a double rise, so it can be time consuming)
