Product Of The Month
Every month we spotlight a bread or product that we sell in our cafés. We hope you enjoy learning a little about them. Stop by any of our locations to sample these treats and take something home to share.
Years ago, I tasted a delicious focaccia in Lucca, Italy. Thin, golden brown and about four feet long. Brushed with salt water, olive oil and baked in a wood-fired oven, customers would order it by length. The baker would cut off a portion, weigh it and sell it to them. The focaccia was light and airy, not as dense as what we typically find in the states. It was an irresistible treat—flavorful and tender with a satisfying crunch from the crust.
That experience inspired Macrina’s Savory Focaccia. We use our Giuseppe dough, a classic Italian dough made with a biga starter and low salt content. Our Savory Focaccia is topped with either a sun-dried tomato tapenade or our Kalamata Tapenade. The simplicity of the bread complements the tapenades perfectly.
Throughout July, we will be making plenty of Savory Focaccia for the cafés, but we do occasionally sell out. To ensure we have one for you, call the café during business hours and we will set one aside for your convenient pickup.
