Eating focaccia in Italy is on my bucket list, so there was not a chance that I would be leaving Northern Italy without chomping on a soft, light piece of carb-infested focaccia. Next to gelato, it was the most talked about must-eat food. And I had already had plenty of gelato. Little did I know they would have something called farinata too. Bonus.
Though there are focaccia joints scattered all over Italia, when we selected La Cambusa in Manarola, Cinque Terre, we did ourselves good.
Farinata, a pizza made of chickpea flour, it a popular street food in Liguria. Foreign to me. Which meant, I’ll take two.
Pete stood outside while waiting for his pomodori focaccia, which only took two minutes.
Two minutes until pillows of heaven arrived, with a soft outer crunch.
I came home and tried to duplicate it by creating this focaccia recipe. Really good, but just not the same.
What was your favorite food in Italy? Have you tried farinata?
