Focaccia is a flat Italian bread that is usually seasoned with olive oil, salt and herbs and also with other ingredients. One can get really creative in baking a Focaccia. Serve it with soups or stews or even as an appetizer, it is crisp and tastes delicious. Here I have used the later winter tomatoes from my garden along with a lot of herbs in Tomato Herb Focaccia. You will love the combination of garlic, herbs and juicy tomatoes.
