The high and soft onion focaccia by chef Paolo Griffa – Italian Cuisine

The high and soft onion focaccia by chef Paolo Griffa

The welcome in Val Sapin is a wonderful picnic on the lawn by Paolo Griffa: salad enriched with freshly picked forest herbs, cheeses, including the inevitable fontina, venison mocetta, a gem, marinated salmon trout, lard Arnad … and then an incredible focaccia with onions that you can make at home

A flat bread high, soft, moist at the right point. The chef Paolo Griffa it really amazed me. Because you expect everything from starred chefs but, let's face it, not a certain amount of rusticity that you hope to find in bread, pizza and focaccia. These are the usual prejudices, it is true, and I also fall for it.
In reality, Griffa, in addition to having revolutionized the kitchen ofPetit Royal Hotel in Courmayeur with a surprise starred menu featuring 40 dishes, a concentrate of techniques and products of the highest quality from the Aosta Valley, he also conquered the whole valley during the March lockdown with his direct Instagram and the recipe of her Pizza, to do at home.
That's why I didn't really have to be amazed in front of hers onions focaccia.
And at the first moving lunge I could not help but ask him for it recipe, to do it again at home.
