I wish I'd taken pics of the entire menu, but I was so busy cooking (& then eating) that I only got this quick shot of the focaccia. I served it first with mushroom paté, followed by chickpea & rosemary soup, then eggplant parmigiana, with three salads - potato, lentil & walnut, chargirlled corn & black bean with homemade smoked pepper mayo, & my favourite, a delicious beetroot & orange salad from Big Vegan that had tofu feta & toasted walnuts on top. I made a cherry coffee cake for dessert. We were fit to burst by the end of all that!

Is it weird that the adjective that comes to mind is "cute"? Because those are some pretty cute focaccia.

pretty.
tell me, how do you get everything to stick? i make a lot of foccaccia and the toppings tend to fall off, making me nuts. (usually i'm driving them to parties or something so it gets troublesome.)

Lovely! I'll take the Red Onion one please, as I don't like rosemary. Should I send you my address now for posting? :-D

Thank you everyone! TupeloHoney, I'm glad you think my focaccia's cute. One of my friends said the olive one looked like a Modernist painting. :)

I brushed them with loads of olive oil first, then sort of poked the toppings in a bit. The onion & olives stuck without any problems, but the rosemary & garlic did flake off a bit when I cut them.

What baffles me is that I did as directed & poked the whole surface full of dimples before putting the oil on, but the dough continued to rise so they ended up dimpleless. How do you make them stay??

Yes, I've had that happen, too; it IS annoying!

What seemed to work best was using a fairly wet dough and making the dimples REALLY deep: basically I poked real holes into the focaccia with a diameter roughly like one finger. After rising, at least some of the holes did not close up completely and stayed visible as dimples.
