THE QUEEN OF ITALIAN STREET FOOD
The story of piadina starts from a revolutionary farm woman in Emilia-Romagna, who bought a humble flat bread for farmers into the cities of Emilia-Romagna making a truly famous delicacy.
Today, you will find Piadina Kiosks called “Piadinerias” in every street corner of the region making one of the most famous Italian street foods.
In Italy, piadinas are also enjoyed as aperitivo on cheese platters and are usually accompanied by a glass of local Sangiovese wine.
WHAT MAKES PIADINA SPECIAL
There is nothing quite like it. Yes, it is technically a type of flat bread and the the Italian version of the Greek Pita, or Turkish Gozleme. The mix of quality ingredients is such that the depth of flavour, the texture, and the tase is uniquely Italian.
MISTAKES TO AVOID
Undercooking – Piadina needs to be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. To avoid undercooking, pre-heat your pan to medium high temperature and heat your piadina on each side for 1 minute each (or until crispy)
For sandwich press, Slice your piadina in half and fill with your favourite ingredients then press for 2 minutes or until crispy. Good things take time and patience - Rome wasn’t built in a day after all.
Eat hot – You want to enjoy your piadinas hot (Street food style)! So don’t wait - Heat, Fill, Fold, Enjoy!
