Discover the delights of traditional Italian baking with this simple guide on how to make Thermomix Ligurian Focaccia.

Ligurian focaccia is more than just bread; it’s a staple of Italian cuisine that embodies the essence of the Ligurian coast, known for its olive oil and fresh herbs.

Thermomix Ligurian Focaccia is a traditional Italian flatbread from the Liguria region, known for its crisp exterior and soft, airy interior. This focaccia is distinctively flavored with olive oil and often topped with rosemary, salt, and sometimes onions or olives. Preparing it in a Thermomix simplifies the process, ensuring consistent texture and flavor, making it a perfect blend of tradition and technology.

To ensure your focaccia is as fluffy and soft as it should be, consider these tips:

  • Proper Hydration: The key to soft dough is the right amount of water. Use the measuring capabilities of your Thermomix to get it just right.
  • Gentle Mixing: Use the kneading function of your Thermomix carefully to avoid overworking the dough. This helps in maintaining the dough’s lightness.
  • Olive Oil: Generously using good quality olive oil not only enhances flavor but also contributes to the classic texture of the focaccia.
  • Even Spreading: When placing your dough on the baking tray, ensure it is evenly spread for a uniformly cooked base.
  • Appropriate Topping: Traditional toppings like rosemary and coarse salt not only add flavor but also aid in the crust’s perfect texture formation during baking.
