Piadina, a true Italian story
Italian bread, or Italian flatbread. Call it the way you want, but piadina is definitely the street food that 100% embodies the Italian style of La Dolce Vita! The typical bread to be filled with all kinds of ingredients, ideal for an alternative break, a quick lunch or a dinner with friends.
Perhaps not even the Italians know it, but in Emilia Romagna - the region where the piadina is made - there are different versions of this bread, all delicious and appreciated. The difference is given by the dough, which changes from city to city, even within a few miles distance. It is a true fact that represents the essence of Italian food: an heritage handed down by grandmothers and mothers who, with their hands, still create unique and inimitable dishes, with some small differences from town to town.
Different types of piadina
Two are the main types of piadina, the Cesena piadina and the Rimini piadina (also called “sfogliata”).
In some areas, piadina is prepared without yeast, in others lard is replaced with oil, in some cases milk is added.
The Cesena piadina has a thickness of about a quarter inch. Smoother and softer, it comes from north of the Romagna and inland. Its ingredients are water, flour, yeast, salt and pork lard.
The piadina from Rimini, also called “sfogliata”, is much thinner. Its name comes from Rimini, the city overlooking the Adriatic sea where Federico Fellini - the most famous Italian film director - was born. In fact, it is typical of this town and of the other coastal cities in the south of the region. It is made in this way so that it can be folded more easily and even make delicious wraps.
It can even be called “piadina sfogliata”, because it is made up of several very thin layers, one overlapping the other. An authentic piece of art!
