s we find ourselves a year into the pandemic, we’ve seen trends to keep us busy at home come and go. Maybe you participated in some trends yourself and are now a master at crafting the perfect sourdough loaf. At Acme, we love finding fun trends to put our local spin on to keep you engaged and to support your local small businesses.
That is why we are challenging you to take your pandemic bread-making to a whole new level with our latest challenge. We are challenging you to take your bread to the level… of fine art! Okay, maybe not “fine art” level… maybe more like kindergarten finger painting or a “drink and paint” class level?
Introducing… the Acme Spring Focaccia Art Challenge! Don’t worry, we were only joking before, focaccia is an easy bread to make and bake—you don’t need to be any sort of bread expert to succeed in this challenge, just a creative spirit! Keep reading to learn more.
Let’s break it down, shall we? First: focaccia. If you didn’t know, focaccia (pronounced “foh-kah-chuh”) is a flat oven-baked Italian bread. Focaccia topped with oil, spices, and other goodies was actually the prototype to modern pizza!
Second: art? Yes, art! All food is art, but this time we mean it a tad more literally: you can make beautiful art on focaccia bread using many different tasty things! See the photos below for inspiration.
