Fresh herbs have been used to flavour our fougasse bread recipe, delicious as a shared starter with olive oil, antipasti and charcuterie. (Tip: The dough should be wet, do not be tempted to add more flour-you will use flour on the worktop. Handle the dough gently to keep as much air in it as possible.)
