    Hello. I was wondering if you could tell me the exact brands of the ingredients you use. I tried to recreate this recipe at home but it just tasted like crap. Lol.

      Hi Jamie,

      Thanks for taking the time to write to us. Our recipes are modified for home cooking. Most products we use are purchased through a food distributor that may not be available from your local grocery store. We recommend these brands for the oil recipe.

      Oil blend: La Spagnolia. http://www.cataniausa.com/index.html#/PRODUCTS-03-03/
      Cheese: We recommend Kraft grated romano cheese
      Red pepper flakes: any brand
      Chopped garlic: you can purchase or make on your own

      Best of luck with the recipe!

      Best,
      Joe

    Hi! Just made this last night for a little get together I was having and it was a HUGE hit. I actually used fresh Italian blend parmesan cheese from the grocery store (Wegmans) and had the shredded not the grated, but it still tasted awesome! I think the key is using a kitchen scale to measure the ingredients…I was shocked how much cheese was 1 oz!

      Hi Lexi,

      We’re so glad the dipping sauce was a hit! Your substitutes sound great too, it’s nice to put your own twist on a dish.

    It seems unlike the other recipes shown, for this one you only posted half of it. Any chance of the bread recipe getting posted?

      Hi Eric,

      You are correct, this is just for the dipping sauce. We will take your suggestion of sharing our bread recipe into consideration for future postings!

    What kind of bread do of use?

    • Joe August 9, 2013 at 4:59 pm — Reply

      Hi Melissa,

      We would recommend calling your local NYAJoe’s to purchase a loaf of our focaccia bread or you can look for any other type of focaccia at your local bakery!

    This is one of our favorite snacks for a get together so when I found the recipe I was super exited. When I made though it tasted a little flat. How long do you let everything sit together before serving? I served immediately and I think that’s where I went wrong.

      Hi Crystal,

      You don’t need to let the ingredients sit before serving, but the change in taste may have come from the flavor profiles used. What did you use for cheese and oil?

    My family had lunch at your Leesburg restaurant yesterday. My daughter-in-law and myself require a gluten free diet. The waiter brought us your gluten free bread whIch was the best I have ever eaten including what I bake. Can you give me any tips regarding the recipe or type flour you use. We live 100 miles from Leesburg but will definitely eat there again.

      Hi Rita,

      We actually purchase our gluten free bread from Gillian’s Foods. We’re thrilled to hear you enjoyed it so much and we look forward to seeing you again! Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Joe, we love your bread and olive oil! Tried it at home, but it didn’t taste right, I believe it was the olive oil, we used regular EVOO. La Spagnolia seems to have several blends.. can you share which one you recommend? Thanks!

    • Joe October 28, 2013 at 5:24 pm — Reply

      Hi Mike,

      We used a 90/10 blend, so 90% vegetable oil, 10% extra virgin olive oil. Best of luck with the recipe, please let us know how your second attempt turns out!

      Best,
      Joe

    Can you post the recipe to the focaccia bread you make in house!? =)

    • Joe December 30, 2013 at 9:35 am — Reply

      Hi Gina,

      Our batch is too large to modify for home cooking, so we are unable to provide a recipe. We sincerely apologize, but you can always order a loaf from your nearest NYAJoe’s to bring home!

      Best,
      Joe

    Hi there, I’m wondering if you could provide a list of the ingredients in the focaccia bread? Not the recipe, but just the ingredients. I’m wondering if the bread is vegan. Thanks.

      Hi Rochelle,
