THE TRADITIONAL

Genoese Farinata

“The Gold of Genoa”

The so called «gold of Genoa» it’s a simple but tasty dish with very ancient origins. Crispy on top and soft inside is a delicious meal for any occasion. It is considered by Genoese people as a «street food» to be eaten at any time of the day!

 Legend has it that this dish was born by chance during the il 13th Century on a Genoese galley when, during a thunderstorm, a few small barrels of oil and some sacks full of chickpeas, were spilled on the floor and got soaked in seawater. Being the supplies quite short already, the purée made with chickpeas, oil and water was gathered as much as possible and put into bowls. Some of them were forgotten in the sun and the puree, drying, gave rise to a kind of delicious pancake. From that day on the recipe was reproduced and the compound cooked in the typical ovens at a very high temperature.

The cooking process for our Farinata is exactly the same as the one they still use today in the typical Genoese «Sciamadde»: the compound made with a mixture of water and chickpea flour is set aside to rest for 6 hours, thereafter is mixed together with olive oil and cooked in copper pans.
