Fougasse Bread  
A type of French bread that is formed into a flattened shape with elongated holes, which give the bread the appearance of tree limbs. It is made with a basic bread dough or a sourdough of wheat bread flour or all-purpose flour and it is often flavored with olive oil and a bit of sugar. Anise is another traditional ingredient that is sometimes used to provide a distinctive flavor. Fougasse is a popular bread in southern France and is often compared to focaccia bread of Italy.
