i was just looking at an on-line menu of the pub i might go to next week, and 'stiratta romagna' appears a number of times on it.

now don't say 'let me google that for you' because i have never before come across something that only exists in the form it exists in on the internet ie i can only find it on menus, with no explanation.

i'm just mystified. i didn't know the internet could ever let you down...

Sounds like a supermodel

It's something Italian...

Romagna (Romagnol: Rumâgna) is an Italian historical region that approximately corresponds to the south-eastern portion of present-day Emilia-Romagna

It looks like a sandwich... Focaccia with cheese and some kind of cured ham?

Also there are lots of pubs/restraurants that are clearly part of a chain because they all have it with "homemade" tomato jam for £9.95.

I think it's a kind of Italian bread, not a sandwich.

is it some sort of bread stick?.....it appears with baked cheeses and some sort of tomato jam

It's a type of bread, artisan rather than mass produced, shaped similarly to a baguette and hailing from Romagna in Italy.
