Best “focaccia al formaggio” in Genoa?
Let’s start from the first consideration that the focaccia with cheese is a product originating in the country of Recco, belin …! (Belin is an interlayer of the Genoese dialect)
Recco is near Genoa and I suggest you go there immediately …!
But if you are in Genoa, through the alleys, I recommend going to eat the best Recco cheese focaccia that you can eat in Genoa center. Yes, because at the Locanda Tortuga you can eat in my opinion the best cheese focaccia that can be eaten in Genoa, and I have tried several. I also explain why. The focaccia is from Recco, Enzo is a gentleman in his sixties, who comes from Recco with his Vespa every day to make the dough with the cheese focaccia. The dough is the standard one, without adding anything, the original Recco recipe, as it should be. So the recipes, which are recipes for this, must be respected, otherwise the recipe tradition would be … belin …! Then following the tradition, prepare the pastry and cook the focaccia with cheese inside the oven.
The restaurant is a restaurant in an old inn with stone walls on two floors. Very welcoming and reserved the restaurant can accommodate several people in the hall below, all with bricks for life. Bernardo, my friend, will wait for you … tell him that you have read this blog and demand the discount …! I would be proud that someone was there saying that he read this blog …!
See you soon and enjoy your meal …; P
