Farinata is a type of thin pancake made from chickpeas flour. It originated in Genova and then became a popular food all over the Ligurian sea coast. Farinata has different names…..if you are in Genova it is called faina, in Nice is socca, in Tuscany cecina and in Sardinia faine……

Originally farinata is sliced in irregular slices and enjoy with fresh crushed black pepper. In Tuscany is served between two slices of focaccia and at home I enjoyed warm with cold cuts……
