The five most tipical food in Liguria 

Gruel

The farinata, is one of the typical Ligurian dishes so loved not only by the natives, but by anyone who is to taste this very nutritious dish. The story of the birth of the farinata is very curious: it is said that, at the end of the Meloria battle between Genoa and Pisa, the ships of the Ligurian city were hit by a storm. The water completely invested the stocks of oil and legumes, making everything a mash. The ship's crew tried to save what could be saved by drying everything in the sun and ... surprise! That food, which would then become the farinata, the preparation of the dish with flour, oil and legumes.

Focaccia di Recco

The focaccia di Recco is one of the flagships that characterizes the typical Ligurian cuisine. Served with cheese - which must be exclusively from the production area - it can be a tasty snack or a substitute for main meals.

Sacripantina

They are Ligurian sweets, a veritable bath of joy for the palate: sponge cake with rum and marsala, sugar and covered with various butter creams. This is sacripantina, a dessert normally served during the Christmas holidays in combination with dessert wines like the Sciacchetrà of the Cinque Terre.

Sacripantina

Of Salt cod fritters

The cod fritters, better known to the Genoese as Friscieu, are a simple and delicious dish, usually eaten in company during the holidays or meeting occasions. In fact, these fritters are nothing more than morsels of dried cod passed in batter and fried in hot oil. However, the yield is excellent, although it is not worth introducing it as a weekly dose of fish in the diet.

Pandolce

Last but not least, a sweet Christmas, the sweet that never fails in Ligurian houses during the holidays: the Genoese Pandolce. Legend has it that Pandolce originated in the 16th century following a competition between pastry chefs called by the doge Andrea Doria, interested in finding a dessert that was long-lasting and representative of the Republic of Genoa. We cannot fail to pay tribute to the winner of this competition for having found a cake that we would never tire of. Raisins, fennel, pine nuts and candied fruit embrace this brick of dough, softening it and softening its consistency.
