Have you had this stuff?
Otherwise known as Turkish flat bread (or pita, to some), pide’s best feature is its soft, rippled texture. It possesses the versatility of a well-crafted tortilla. Mop up extra virgin olive oil, babaganoush, and any edible semi-liquid substance you can get your hands on.
So, where’d I get this from? On a nearby corner, there’s a little store called Old Castle Farm. I typically refer to this establishment as Vegetable, as it is a purveyor of, you guessed it, vegetables. Don’t be mistaken — they sell fruit, too, but I dislike Fruit and loathe Produce, so Vegetable it is. In addition to produce, Vegetable sells a handsome array of cheeses, Greek sweets, and breads, including pide.
If your neighborhood lacks Vegetable and Fruits, you can make your own pide. Here’s an easy-to-follow recipe from Epicurean.com. I might try it out … or I’ll stick to my trusted pide supplier.
