Giveaway: A Tavola Together 5-Minute Focaccia Mix


A Tavola Together sent us a package of their Original Five-Minute Focaccia Mix to try.  I haven’t ever really made focaccia bread, so I was excited give this a try.  The five minutes in the name of the focaccia mix refers to the amount of hands-on time this bread takes, but the bread will not actually be ready to bake and serve for many hours, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time!


The process is simple and only takes two additional ingredients in addition to the mix:  carbonated water & olive oil.  Basically, you mix the carbonated water (I used selzter water) into the mix, then cover it and let it rise for at least three hours to overnight.  I let it rise for about six hours, and from my experience, six to ten hours seems about right.  Mine was not even close to ready after three hours. 

When the dough has risen, you coat a baking sheet with the olive oil, then spread the dough out and then flip it over to coat both sides.  Then the fun part comes:  sticking your fingers in the dough to make all the little dimples!  After that, it’s ready to bake for twenty minutes, and then, voila! It’s done! 


The bread was tasty and well-seasoned with the nice flavor of olive oil that has soaked into the bread.  There is a lot of potential with this original flavor – you can add all sorts of herbs, spices, and toppings to it to make it any flavor you want!  In addition to just eating this fantastic bread, we made it into a focaccia pizza by spreading our favorite sauce, cheese, and toppings on it, then putting it in the oven to melt a bit. Tasty!

A Tavola’s focaccia mix comes in six varieties including Original, Rosemary, Raisin, Chocolate Chip, Gluten-Free, & Gluten-Free Rosemary.  Each mix retails for $5.00 ($6.00 for GF) and can be purchased in their online store or at Amazon.
