Use your loaf! It’s the latest lockdown trend causing a stir on Instagram… creating beautiful art on focaccia bread
Two hobbies keeping lots of us sane during lockdown are baking and gardening.
Now a new trend, which combines the two, is taking social media by storm: welcome to Focaccia Art.
Most people give the credit for inventing it to Teri Culletto.
Teri, 56, a professional baker from Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, came up with the idea during a baking class.
She recalls: ‘It was Valentine’s Day so we decided to put a heart design, made out of vegetables, on the bread, then we started to create romantic flowers.
It turned into one of the best classes I’ve ever taught.’
Since then, Teri has become renowned for the bread art she calls ‘Van Dough’.
