The preparation: 

In a bowl combine flour,salt and olive oil. Put the yeast into a jug and add the water. Stir well to dissolve the yeast. Just pour the water into the bowl with the flour. Mix it with a fork and then turn the dough into a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Cover with cling film and leave it to rest for about 45 minutes. This amount of dough is enough to make two rolled focaccia.

Cut the dough in half. With a rolling pin open the dough into a rectangle shape. Spread the chutney( be carefull to leave 1inch on each side). Add the peppers, mushrooms, basil and grate the parmesan cheese. Pick the bottom side and pul it on top, then do the same thing with the top side. Fold the side parts as well and then start to roll it trying to keep all the ingredients inside. Cut them into 2inches pieces. Arrange them in a tray lined with parchment paper making sure they have enough space beetween them. Bake them at 200°C for about 20-25 minutes checking them every now and then. Enjoy!

Where is the fun? Are you too buried under a ton of duties? Well it’s high time we took the simple joys in life more seriously and Μadame Gâteaux has the “know-how”.

Pick a sunny day during the week, call a friend, fill your basket with savoury and sweet goodies and you are ready to go! We know it’s quite hard to find a decent outdoor spot to host a picnic in Athens, but the park next to Megaron will definitely reward you.

Μadame Gâteaux had prepared her outrageously tasty delicacies including pink lady apple, brie, prosciutto and arugula buns, carrot & cheddar finger sandwiches, cranberry jam linzer biscuits, cocoa & matcha tea marble cake with bitter chocolate glaze. We also had assam tea, a full bodied, black tea from northeastern India, strong and perfect for the morning hours, rich, hearty and very aromatic.
