Recipe: A Springtime Garden-Inspired Focaccia

ICYMI, this month Perelel is celebrating our Bloom Into You campaign, inspired by Mother Nature to honor women who have established strong roots within themselves, planted a seed, and grew into their own.

And to help bring the garden into your home, we tapped Camilla Ruth Marcus, the chef behind the plant-based, zero-waste provisions shop, west~bourne, to share a springtime garden-inspired focaccia recipe.

Sure to be a crowdpleaser, this recipe is equal parts fun and delicious. Once you've kneaded the dough, create an edible masterpiece using seasonal produce and flowers. Have little ones in your home? Enlist their help—we promise this will make them want to eat their veggies.

West~Bourne Focaccia Recipe

Yields: almost 1 full sheet tray


  • 660 g poolish (fermented at room temperature, for at least 10 hours) (330 g all purpose flour + 330 g water)
  • 470 g water
  • 600 g all purpose flour
  • 100 g potato flour
  • 1 tbsp dry yeast (10 g)
  • 170 g refined avocado oil, we love west~bourne Organic Extra Virgin Avocado Oil ($45)
  • 35 g kosher salt


When the poolish is ready, combine it in a mixer with water, AP flour, potato flour, and dry yeast. Knead the mixture with a dough hook for about 5-10 minutes. Allow dough to bulk proof for at least .5 hours.

Return the dough to the mixer and add refined avocado oil and kosher salt. Knead to just combine. Spread out dough on a sheet tray lined with refined avocado oil (no parchment), starting from the middle and working your way outwards to the edges.*

*Note: It's very important to spread it out evenly, since this is the last time the dough will be touched.

Let it proof in the tray for minimum 1.5 hours. Drizzle more oil on top of the bread, top with garden vegetables or edible flowers and sprinkle with maldon salt.

Bake at 450 degrees, high convection for about 10 minutes.
