The Art of Pizza, Spanish StyleTuesday, November 21, 2017
With Thanksgiving happening this very week you would think we would be sharing something turkey-related or deliciously focused desserts, but I think we would be doing a disservice to you if we didn’t share one of our favorite menu items. Authentic Spanish “Coca”! It’s one of the most popular dishes in Spain, a specialty of Catalonia in fact. What’s better is how easy it is to make. Tender yeasted dough, pita-like, they are rolled flat & topped with deliciousness. Cocas can be topped with just about anything sweet or savory, whether mushrooms or spinach, olives or anchovies, ham, bacon, tomatoes or even a combination of onion & honey. They are generally grabbed by the slice at bakeries that serve them for a quick lunch or snack.
Here at Mercat we offer a variety of house made cocas from Catalan Sausage to Blue Fin Tuna Belly. You’re bound to find a seasonal favorite on our menu. Be sure to try one on your next visit!
