Rosemary Focaccia

Rustic Rosemary Focaccia, the most delicious homemade Italian bread that can be enjoyed as a side dish or just on its own. It's a lot easier to make than you think, and a lot tastier than any store-bought version. Full of flavour, and baked to perfection, my rosemary focaccia is a real treat. It tastes absolutely amazing, and it has a delicate olive oil kick that is hard to miss. Add any veggies to it, and you'll love every single bite!
