Pre-ordered Freshly Baked 4-Cheese Focaccia by Makati Shangri-La

A Classic Roman Flatbread

A bread borne from the Ancient Greeks and Estr¬≠uscans in the north¬≠ern shores of the Mediter¬≠ranean, Focac¬≠cia is a yeast¬≠ed flat¬≠bread loved most pop¬≠u¬≠lar in Italy. Typ¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly served as an antipas¬≠to, appe¬≠tiz¬≠er or a table bread along with a hearty Ital¬≠ian meal. Only avail¬≠able for Sat¬≠ur¬≠day deliveries.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

With a his¬≠to¬≠ry reach¬≠ing even before the Roman Empire, Ital¬≠ians have long invent¬≠ed dif¬≠fer¬≠ent spins to this ver¬≠sa¬≠tile flat¬≠bread. And the culi¬≠nary experts at Makati Shangri-La are no different.

A beau¬≠ti¬≠ful focac¬≠cia recipe that per¬≠fect¬≠ly suits the Fil¬≠ipino palate while stay¬≠ing true to its Mediter¬≠ranean ori¬≠gins, the 4 Cheese Focac¬≠cia by Makati Shangri-La is a hearty and deli¬≠cious feast. Soft and moist when pulled apart, this fra¬≠grant flat¬≠bread is made of pre¬≠mi¬≠um olive oil and fresh herbs, topped with 4 cheeses of Brie, Manchego, Emmen¬≠tal and Gruy√®re for a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful, gold¬≠en-brown crust and a creamy, sharp taste that con¬≠trasts with the herbal qual¬≠i¬≠ty of this bread.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

An incred¬≠i¬≠bly ver¬≠sa¬≠tile bread, this 4 Cheese Focac¬≠cia can be served as an appe¬≠tiz¬≠er, a side dish to soups and sal¬≠ads or eat¬≠en as a snack with a cup of Ital¬≠ian Caffe Karo¬≠ma L‚ÄôEspresso Moka coffee.

In Roman times, focac¬≠cia was used as a dip¬≠ping bread with soups or olive oil. So why not do as the Romans do! Enjoy this bread, warmed and toast¬≠ed, with a sim¬≠ple dip¬≠ping sauce of Olive Oil with a dash of bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar such as our Fat¬≠to¬≠ria Estense Aged 3 Years Bal¬≠sam¬≠ic Vine¬≠gar. A sim¬≠ple and beau¬≠ti¬≠ful start to your Ital¬≠ian din¬≠ner menu!

Storage Instructions

Baked fresh on Sat¬≠ur¬≠day morn¬≠ings at Makati Shangri-La. Best con¬≠sumed upon arrival, but you can store it on the kitchen counter at room tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for up to two days. If you‚Äôve sliced into it, you can leave it cut side down on the chop¬≠ping board. You may also place the sliced loaf in a ceram¬≠ic bread box or a clean paper bag. Nev¬≠er store bread in the refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor, or else it will dry out. By the third day, you can place the bread in a large ziplock bag, but please note that the crust will soft¬≠en and your bread will require toast¬≠ing to refresh it. For stor¬≠age up to three months in the freez¬≠er, wrap your bread in parch¬≠ment paper and place it back in the ziplock bag.

To refresh frozen bread, take it out of the freez¬≠er to thaw in the paper wrap¬≠ping for a few hours or overnight. Make sure it gets to room tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture. Pre¬≠heat your oven to 175¬įC. When ready, spritz your thawed loaf light¬≠ly with water on all sides to cre¬≠ate steam, place on a bak¬≠ing tray, and heat for 15‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ20 min¬≠utes. Allow bread to cool on a rack for at least half an hour before serving.
