The Next Big Thing

This is a snack food outlet, close to the university in Verona. As you can see, they just serve one thing – piadine. And I reckon they could be ‘the next big thing’.

They are sort of like an Italian version of Indian chapatis but filled. Or may be like a pitta but much softer. They’re stuffed with ham and cheese or whatever the cook fancies. And they are fantastic.

I can see them taking over from Panini.

Oh and by the way, as I was walking along the path by the Adige, stuffing my face with piadine, I took the following picture of another Italian speciality being displayed in a tiny café, heaving with customers. So much for Cornish Pasties being just something you find in the southwest of England!
