Top Rated Fougasse Recipes

Laurent Kalkotour, formerly of DB Bistro Moderne and chef behind the French-inspired menu at Atrium DUMBO, shares a recipe from his youth in Provence. "Les Treize is a tradition in the south of France where after the big dinner, we have 13 different desserts placed on the table at the same time. It is meant to represent Jesus and his 12 apostles. The desserts vary from region to region and family to family. Out of all 13, my favorite is one my mother made called Fougasse. It's a sweetened olive oil bread with a dash of orange blossom water. For me it was perfect, fruity and fragrant from the olive oil and orange water, but not overly sweet. It is more of a savory dessert."Photo Modified: Flickr/barbbarbbarb

This recipe for fougasse, the French version of the Italian focaccia bread, is topped with mixed herbs. The flat bread can be slashed to form shapes (a leaf, tree, or wheat stalk), or the slits can be cut to form a lattice, making the bread easy to pull apart.

If you want dramatic impact on your holiday table, look no further. These leaf-shaped breads (traditionally one of the 13 desserts of a Provençal Christmas Eve) are large and sculptural, with a heady fragrance of orange and anise.

Fougasse is a favorite in southern France. It is said that the holes cut into the flatbread served a very specific purpose — they allowed a field worker to slip his arm through and carry the bread to work along with his tools. Serve this with the Bourride or as an appetizer, brushed with a little olive oil.

The flavours is a little like focaccia, but a French chef told me this bread comes from his provincial town, where people eat this like a bread stick, with a little olive oil. I tried this with italian style, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and some nice, matured cheese. It's pretty good. I would imagine the dough makes for a great sandwich bread too.
