Express your love of craft with this Fusion Focaccia

Article

Craft is hot and consumers are willing to pay more for handcrafted products. This is all about food with a human touch that showcases the artisan’s expertise and their love for the product and the craft, as well as the sharing of tradition and heritage. Using this recipe for a Fusion Focaccia, you can seriously showcase your craftsmanship!

Responding to consumers’ craving for craft
Craft is one of the nine global trends that were revealed by the latest Taste Tomorrow survey. There are many ways to respond to your customers’ desire for handcrafted products. For instance, you can display how the products are made by baking in full view or by using an open oven concept like they do at Carrefour or Kamps Backstube. And you can also adapt your storytelling, the way you tell customers about your heritage or your recipe.

These are examples of how to use production to display craft. But what’s in the product also matters: the ingredients and recipe also define craft for consumers.

Fusion Focaccia
That’s why we’re presenting this recipe for a beautiful Fusion Focaccia. Made with local ingredients, this focaccia provides consumers with an experience that is both visually appealing and tasty. It is tailored to Asian palates by combining miso soup, ginger and partly charcoal-coloured dough. Creating this dough is a great way to display your craftsmanship!
