The sweet yet sharp flavour of the balsamic roasted grapes and the crisp conference pears create a welcome contrast to the rich gorgonzola. Organic Wholeblend Piadina are crafted with wholemeal durum wheat, giving a slightly nuttier and earthier flavour which works brilliantly with the rest of the fillings. Remember to warm your Piadina slightly in a pan or hot oven beforehand, this helps the olive oil in the Piadina melt slightly ensuring a soft and flexible Piadina, ready to be filled, folded, and enjoyed!

    Heat oven to 180°C. 

  • Step 2

    Remove gorgonzola from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, cut the pears in half and core, then slice thinly using a sharp knife or mandoline. 

  • Step 5

    Lightly crush the walnuts using the back of your knife or a pestle and mortar.

  • Step 6

    Warm the Wholebelnd Piadina in a hot, dry pan for 1 minute each side and then transfer to a serving dish.

  • Step 7

    Remove the grapes from the oven and assemble your piadina by adding slices of pear first, followed by the grapes, gorgonzola, and a sprinkling of crushed walnuts.
