new focaccia at la cucina!

Bruno has recently started doing new filled rosemary focaccia and they are really popular. We do 3 types:

 - chicken, rocket and roast pepper.
 - parma ham, rocket and Parmesan shavings.
 - parma ham, gorgonzola and red onion.

A pizza ball is hand stretched:

The focaccia is drizzled with olive oil and the rosemary is finely chopped:

The focaccia is sprinkled with the rosemary and sea salt:

It is then cooked at about 380 degrees until golden brown:

They are then cut open and filled:

The chicken is the most popular but my favourite is the parma ham and gorgonzola.

buon appetito!

    Looks brilliant – nearly enough to make me drive to Limerick for lunch and I am in Naas. Why could you not have been there when I was in UL many moons ago. It would have been a nice change from the the Stables’ special and chips!

    Thanks everyone:)

    Bannerboy – I’ll have to send you one to Naas or else we’ll just have to open up there:)

    Marie – I’ll do a post on the dough even though I don’t think you need any recipes from me:)

    Anon – not at the moment as we do a ciabatta that is really popular, even the non-vegetarians are choosing it over the others. If there is enough demand for it we will, we’ll see how they go.
