There's a flat bread for whatever mood you're in at International Spices & Grocery in Rochester.
Injera, lahvosh (Armenian cracker bread), pita and hambasha are some of the round, thin Middle Eastern/ African breads that are fun to pick up and experiment with. I like hambasha, a sweet bread, with cardamom tea; other breads are perfect for dips, sauces, stews or wraps.
Pita can be toasted with olive oil and salt to become a chip. Pita chips, toasted or fried, are a key ingredient in a popular Levantine salad called fattoush. During my recent trip to Marin County, north of San Francisco, I encountered fattoush as a specialty of the house at critically acclaimed Insalata's, a Mediterranean restaurant in San Anselmo. If you'd like to make fattoush, mayoclinic.com features a recipe for it.
Or just enjoy the staff of life all by itself.
