Dish No. 75: Schiacciata con l'Uva at Sullivan Street Bakery
Today's pick: Schiacciata con l'uva at Sullivan Street Bakery.
Schiacciata ("squashed") is an Italian flatbread served in several parts of central Italy. This particular version is seasonal, made in Tuscany during the grape harvest.
The surface is strewn with tiny wine grapes and anise seeds, and the bread is slightly sweet. Baking concentrates the flavor of the berries, and the anise seeds lend pungency. Schiacciata con l'uva ($3.50 per slice) makes an incredible breakfast, and an even better dessert.
By some miracle, this regional Italian specialty has been transported faithfully to Manhattan, and you can get it for a limited time at
