Focaccia with Recco cheese and PGI mark

Did you know that by preparing focaccia di Recco outside the Ligurian East, you could receive a complaint for fraud? Naturally on a commercial level.

In 2015 the focaccia di Recco obtained the PGI mark , but European legislation prohibits even its production with attached denomination outside of Genoa, Avegno, Camogli and Sori. Although respecting the original recipe, if made elsewhere this dish will have to be nicknamed simply "cheese focaccia" . Not even pre-cooking in Liguria will save you: the current law does not allow pre-cooking or other preservation methods!


Recco focaccia with Thermomix can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days .
