The simplest option is to slice into strips and serve as a dipping bread with oil and vinegar or serve as an accompaniment bread. However, it takes little effort to split and fill them. For example, Mediterranean style ingredients such as chargrilled and roasted vegetables, with Spanish chicken and chorizo, cut into chunky sandwiches look great on a buffet. Open sandwiches work well if you split them horizontally. Rustic pizzas are also a popular option; both work well as lighter meals in which the ingredients can evolve to suit the transition from winter to spring menus. We’ve also seen them used as a base for canapes when sliced thinly, cut into small triangles or squares, and lightly toasted. Perhaps best of all the samples we tried was the simple drizzling of olive oil, a touch of seasoning, toasted and served alongside an amazing risotto – a winning combination for your menu with a strong profit margin.
A lot of customers research went into determining the size of these focaccia sheets – which are supplied frozen. Measuring approximately 55cm x 20cm x 4cm, and with 5 sheets per case, they give you a high level of versatility without being overwhelming.
