Our friend and cooking instructor Lili brought us this fantastic recipe. As you read Lili’s instructions, a very specific mental picture forms as she describes spreading the dough: “as if you’re aggressively playing the piano.” When she teaches pizza and flatbread, she’ll teach you how to shape the dough using your “kitty cat paws.” If those instructions make you smile, then you need to be in the room with Lili when she teaches. She is pure entertainment – and a great instructor, kitty cat paws and all.
This no-knead focaccia is one of our favorite recipes. We like it in a half-sheet pan for a thinner result, but baked in a 13X9 pan will get you a thicker pan of sandwich-ready focaccia. Don’t skip the Cyprus Flake Salt for the finish- that crunch. Oh my!
