One of my favorite parts about going out to dinner for Italian (real Italian, not olive garden) is the fresh focaccia bread served with good olive oil and vinegar. I have to restrain myself from eating the whole basket so I don’t kill my appetite. So when I received a bottle of amazing olive oil from Pasolivo, an olive oil producer from Paso Robles of my home state California, I knew that making this no knead focaccia would be perfect with their oils. Great olive oil like theirs is best utilized for dipping and drizzling, where the flavor can really pop. You can absolutely cook with it too, but I love the way good olive oil shines when it’s drizzled over pasta or fresh bread.
I can’t think of a more delicious gift to receive during this holiday season than this simple no knead focaccia bread and you’ll be able to make this focaccia and herb+oil dipping sauce for all your loved ones! This recipe, by the way, is the easiest bread you’ll ever make. Just mix it together, let it sit, and bake! Who doesn’t love bread recipes like that?
