2015 Flatbread

Focaccia di Recco at Palladino’s

Luke Palladino experimented with this unleavened Genovese flatbread for seven years before he finally found the oven that could cook it to his satisfaction. Stuffed with tangy stracchino cheese that melts into pliant dough riddled with wood-smoky blisters, this dish is an object lesson in practice paying off.
