don't eat the dough!!!!!
Well, I'm sure everyone enjoys taking a fingerful of raw dough and tasting it. I do all the time. Yep if there is fresh egg in there, I have a pang of caution before I do so. But just now we're told by the FDA that raw flour itself is an e.coli risk.
You know, bird poop on grain, and all that.
Now, I respect the concern, but I've got to say. I probably consume as much bird poop by walking outside and breathing on a windy day (dried bird poop will turn into dust and be spread efficiently through the air) as I do with a fingerful of dough.
So next time you do a pre-bake sample of your wonderful foccacia, be aware of the risks!
