F - Foccacia Bread

Foccacia Bread


It was in 2008 when I first had a taste of it. I remember it was on a food trip with scrapbook friends - after visiting the Carmelite Nuns in Tarlac, we went to eat at the C' Italian Dining in Angeles, Pampanga. The waitress served us some foccacia bread while we wait for our orders.

A few months after, I attended my first bloggers' event held at the Italianni's Restaurant in Bonifacio High Street, and we, too, were served some foccacia bread as well. This picture was taken at an Italianni's Restaurant, but in their Gateway Mall branch in Cubao, when the family went to use the gift certificates they gave after the bloggers' event.

On those three food trips, foccacia bread served to us were just plain, but we were served some bottles of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and some herbs so we could mix our own dip. The blend of all the flavors were really good, that I immediately fell in love with the bread that time.

Nowadays, whenever I wanted to eat foccacia bread, I don't have to visit any of these restaurants. Instead, I can just go the Sidcor Weekend Market in Eton Centris, because my friend Ria and I discovered a stall there selling breads, and they sell foccacia breads as big as table placemat (about 18 inches long, 2 inches thick) for only p60 (1.37usd). Herbs were already added to that bread, so all we need to have is to prepare the olive oil/balsamic vinegar dip.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
