Green Focaccia

A delicious and healthy focaccia recipe bursting with nutty goodness & fresh herbal aromas. With an irresistible topping of caramelised onions and scrumptious sun-dried tomatoes, this is a great choice for sharing while basking in the summer sunshine.

Wine pairing: Best enjoyed with a glass of Frittmann Winery's Chardonnay, a light and easy-drinking wine with a refreshing citrussy palate.
