Lawsuit Aims To Settle Big Question: Who Owns The Rights To “Stretch” Bread

May 30, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The owner of a Syracuse, N.Y.-area restaurant has filed a lawsuit charging former employees with stealing the recipe/technique for a unique bread known as “stretch” bread. The owner of Pastabilities says the former employees violated a confidentiality agreement when they took the secret recipe to competitor eatery La Piazza. Whoever presides over the case will have to untangle a historical knot of personalities and events to settle the issue. But what the fight is about is fairly clear: stretch bread is a rich-tasting, crispy, chewy, flaky white bread with a thin crust that is “hands down, one of the most delicious creations to come out of Central New York since the salt potato”.
