The real and unique Camaldoli’s schiacciata
The real Camaldoli’s schiacciata, is made by Tassini’s family since 1890, year when my grand-grand parents started producing it for the peregrins coming from Moggiona where the grand-parents had a little shop, and at Camaldoli’s heremitage where together with their children they managed for over 40 years the “Canova of the monks”.
In 1927, one of the sons, my grand-grand father Dante, opened a little chalet Restaurant in the little lake next to the heremitage, also there schiacciata will be produced for peregrins, creating a mix of holy and profane; in fact at the Canova you could only eat meatless, while at the Chalet next to the little lake you could also eat meat.
In 1930 grand-grand father Dante marries Grand-grand mother Bruna he rents an ancient outbuilding of the monastery, in Camaldoli. My grand-grand-mother Bruna, young and clever, gives life to the mix of SCHIACCERIA and restaurant Camaldoli, giving to her guests delicious little schiacciate, and drawn up dishes to please a wide range of costumers.
I am the last keeper of an ancient recipe, that with all it’s simplicity contains more than a thausand years of history and loving gestures.
The ancient recipe and the sourdough have been passed like a nursery rhyme: from great-great grandmother bruna to great-grandmother Bruna and grandmother Rosanna, from grandmother to my mother MariaPia and at the end to me, Elisa, i produce everyday delicious schiacciatine for piligrims and tourists that want a good product unchanged in the time.
Lately there are many people trying to copy our schiacciate but although they all seem alike, the difference is in the taste.
