Best Ever Focaccia

"We used to go to a restaurant here that has closed down. They made the best focaccia I have ever tasted. It was light and fluffy, not at all like a pizza crust. This is my take on it. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer when making this, I am sure a breadmaker on the dough cycle would work as well. Feel free to use different herbs. I will sprinkle parmesan cheese on top some days. Italian seasoning also works well. Serve chunks of this focaccia with a good quality olive oil & balsamic vinegar to dip it in. There was a bit of a glitch in the system when I was posting this recipe - it posted 4 times! I hope you find your way back here to let me know what you think of this focaccia."

Chef #8832636. My memebership on this site goes back to the days of recipezaar, so I have seen a lot of changes on the site over the years. I still miss the forums, they had a wealth of information in them, and it was great to be able to connect with other chefs through them. I don't think zmail exists anymore either, so I don't think we have any way of contacting other chefs now. I haven't been on the site much in the last few years, mainly because of the changes. I do still pop in to look for specific recipes. I enjoy cooking, and am passionate about baking.
