"Breakfast in Gaeta" Focaccia Bread
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Giuseppe: "My focaccia is called 'Breakfast in Gaeta' because it reminds me of the breakfast I used to have in Gaeta, which is my hometown, with my grandmother. These olives have been flown back from Gaeta, so they are the ones that are harvested in my hometown. And the oil has been made by my father in law."

Voice-Over: "Sounds lovely. Alongside his imported olives and olive oil, Giuseppe's focaccia will include one other unique ingredient in terms of liquid ..." 

Giuseppe: "I'm using a mix of water and milk."

Paul Hollywood: "It's the sort of focaccia that I would bake, but let's have a look inside, shall we? (Tastes) It's really nice. It's sort of soft and yet it's still got the focaccia structure. Shows it's proved correctly. But the thing that I particularly like is you haven't gone overboard with flavour and you've made a beautifully light focaccia. And you get a mouthful of everything on every bite. And that's what focaccia is. Thank you. I think it's beautiful. Well done."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
