Anybody ever try Fougasse?

Found this at Wegmans...it's delicious! Has spinach and garlic in it, and tastes just like really good garlic bread. Just wondering if anybody else has ever seen it.

I never posted pictures before, so I hope this works..picture of my girlfriend holding it, and one of half of it sliced up to be served with a pasta dish.

I've never heard of it, but I looked it up and it sounds absolutely fantastic!

I don't have Wegman's around here, but I will keep my eyes open for this bread!

Here's a recipe I found that I might try. Fougasse - Allrecipes

Fougasse is a Provençal bread that is baked in the shape of fingers. I've never heard of it with that kind of stuff in it... it's usually an olive oil bread and often has olives in it.... depending upon who's made it, it can be sublime or ridiculous....
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I love fougasse. We used to buy it a small Italian bakery in Montreal. It was either topped with olives, or thinly sliced tomatoes, either way, it was wonderful!!!
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

chave, they opened up a wegmans near baltimore about 2 years ago (when i was living up there), and i too was utterly compelled to purchase that palm-leaf shaped savory bread. it was *fantastic*, especially after being popped in the oven for a few minutes to warm/crispy it up. i've never seen that style of bread anywhere else besides the one store, though.
I love cooking with wine...sometimes I even put it in the food... fireweaver.wordpress.com
