Fennel Grape Bread

Preparation of the Bread
|Zubereitung des Brots|
The recipe is wonderful - fennel and grapes are still readily available at this time of year. The mild aniseed flavor of the fennel really harmonizes well with the sweetness of the purple grapes. And the fennel seed add a wonderful aromatic note to this focaccia style bread!
|Das Rezept ist wunderbar – Fenchel und Trauben kann man zur Zeit noch überall zu kaufen. Der milde Anis-Geschmack von Fenchel harmoniert sehr gut mit der Süße der Trauben. Und die Fenchelsamen bringen eine wunderbare aromatische Note in dieses Brot, welches an ein Focaccia erinnert!|
Thanks again for all your support! I really do appreciate it!
|Lieben Dank nochmals für all eure Unterstützung!|

I just cooked with some dried fennel today and was reminded of how much I love the flavor. This break looks glorious. And I am so happy you are up for that award. You deserve it my dear and you have my vote!ReplyDelete
Monet, thank you - fennel has turned out to be my one of my favorite vegetables - and thankfully, it is readily available around here. And so are the grapes. Thanks for stopping by!Delete
My dear Andrea, I voted for you and I hope you win! I love how beautiful this bread looks, so rustic yet so festive and I know it tastes delicious. I almost bought a fennel bulb today so I could make this but had to stop myself as I am watching my gluten intake. I know I would eat all of it myself! I will make it as soon as I am allowed to eat bread again. Have a wonderful Thursday!ReplyDelete

What a beautiful bread Andrea! I have no idea how I hadn't discovered your blog before as you seem to have a lot of the same blogging friends as I do. Glad that I have now though, and the bonus is that there's lots to catch up on :) I'll definitely try this bread. I'm already a huge fan of fennel so I can imagine how delicious this would be.
