INGREDIENTS for 0 people
  • 1 ½ lb wheat flour
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ oz salt
  • ¾ oz fresh yeast
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • durum wheat flour to taste
Preparation

Knead the mixture of wheat flour, extra-virgin olive oil, a little salt, yeast and water for at least half an hour.

Then divide the dough into the required number of pieces and allow to rest for a few minutes. Make quite long rolls. Place them on a damp pastry board. Flatten the rolls out with your hands and allow to rise.

Then cut out stripes of dough, place them on a layer of semolina then “stretch them” by hand at arms-length, so that they take on the typical shape of breadsticks.

Bake in a moderate oven (350°F) until cooked.

 

 

Did you know that…

Napoleon had a complete fixation for grissini (which he referred to as the”little sticks of Turin”) and had them shipped to him daily directly from Turin?
