How To Make Focaccia
Very good Focaccia! I used a very high protein European style bread flour and it was great.I thought before I baked it that the dough was a bit slack. It wasn't. The rise held up nicely with the hg flour. I had tried it with regular supermarket flour, and, no slam at Pillsbury, there's no comparison

Tourtiers (French Pork Pie)
Very similar to Nana's meat pies except for the celery. Celery sort of stales the custom, so to speak. When I tinker with Tourtiere, what I usually do is up the cinnamon. My sister uses frozen pie crusts. I like the tender flaky DIY crust made with lard. This recipe is very close to original. Not busy . that's the way passed down recipes are supposed to be.
