    Dumb question amnesty - I let the dough ferment in the bowl for 12 hours instead of 2, at room temp. Totally switched the two fermenting lengths in this recipe. My question now is, do I need to start over? It still smells like bread dough, with a slight alcohol/vinegary smell.

    The focaccia looks kinda like a type of bread stick

    I made the focaccia, it was amazing, but I also nearly set my kitchen on fire when I made the sleep deprived decision to toast some.

    He must have meant bake for 15 minutes, remove the lid and spray again, then bake another 15 minutes. I baked mine for about 45 minutes before I realized I burnt it to shit. I’ll try again.

    Is it 30 minutes or 15 minutes with the lid on? In the video you say 30, but the written instructions on your website say 15. I cooked mine for 30 minutes with the lid, and it came out as dark as your finished loaf in the video. No need to say I didn't put it back for 15 more minutes without the lid.

    400g of bread flour = 3 and 1/3 cups, for those of us with broken scales

    Finally made the focaccia and it turned out really well. Definitely oil the pan. Mine scorched just a tad and stuck abut, but mostly fine. Next time, I’ll probably reduce the salt just a touch as that is the only flavoring I’d change. Great recipe

    I would recommend some level of fermentation so that you can get better bubbles with the bread

    Ever since I started eating fresh bread the closed-top sandwich has become this taboo topic for me. I only eat open top sandwiches now, I don't know why but doing otherwise feels wrong.

    When you put the olive oil in the dough I had a sudden flashback to making bread with my mom when I was younger. I could smell it. I felt like the critic from Ratatouille
