First attempt at Focaccia

Well a double first for me today pasta and Focaccia.  Here's a pic of the latter (completely forgot to take one of the pasta)..

Thanks mmin

I'm finding wetter doughs for a lot of the breads I make seem to produce a lighter, chewier crumb.  The tip about using a lot of yeast for the Focaccia sounds interesting - I shall try it.  My wife has just bought a Kenwood Chef mixer so kneading wet dough has become a whole lot easier (and cleaner).
