  1. Ciao from Italia! Dan and I recently found our way to your blog, and I just made this focaccia today. I had to adjust for locally available equipment/ingredients but in the end it was fantastic! Great recipe! Dan will be working late tonight, but I will make sure that he has it with an egg on top for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks again!

    Hope you're having a great summer.

    All best,
    Dan and Robyn
