Maroggia’s Mill Cookbook: Marjoram and Orange Zest Focaccia / Il Ricettario del Mulino di Maroggia: Focaccia maggiorana e scorza d’arancia

 

And yet again another focaccia recipe! For today’s Maroggia’s Mill Cookbook I present you the recipe for a high hydration, fresh, spring-mood flavoured focaccia. Mix a hint of creativity, a sprinkle of marjoram a pinch of orange zest and you will have a delicious bread to accompany your salads with. Keep aside the recipe to accompany cold summer soups…try it with a fresh gazpacho, you will love it! To make it I used Maroggia’s Mill pasta and pizza flour, a skilful mix of wheat flour and finely ground semolina flour. When I don’t have any of this special flour around I usually mix 50% of wheat flour with 50% of semolina flour. The recipe has been tasted and approved by my guinea pigs, what are you waiting for?

ZZAFF!: Veneziane

 

For this month’s ZZAFF! episode I opted for a classic of our childhood’s mid-day snacks. What’s your memory of veneziane? To me it was a specialty that was given as a snack only on special occasions! Elegant, decorated with sugar grains and coated with a crisp and sticky hazelnut glaze, the veneziana is a refined leavened dough bread usually flavoured with vanilla and citrus. And it is extremely soft! History also testifies its consumption on special occasions such as weddings and Christmas and Easter Holidays. After all, the dough is very similar to that of colomba and panettone. I also found a dialectal expression: “Bell ti che ta gh’et ammò la veneziana con sü ul zücher!” that means: “Lucky you, you still have your veneziana with its sugar on!”. It is an expression that alludes to the consumption of veneziane on the occasion of wedding celebrations. The image of fresh veneziane which still have their grains of sugar on them is a metaphor for a newly feted wedding. My version although simplified is a bit complicated to make, but it gives a lot of satisfaction!
