Grab Some Grissini
Breadsticks (grissini, dipping sticks) are delicious bakery products that are roughly the size of a pencil. Grissini are present in the culinary culture of many people from America, Europe (mainly in Spain, France, Italy, Bulgaria and Greece), parts of Asia, and already at the table of the Bulgarians.
From a recently unknown product, SaLza Grissini are becoming more and more popular. History states thatgrissiniappeared in the Piedmont region, Northeastern Italy. There are two versions of their origin – one based on a legend and the other based on old written sources. Whether its origin is romantic or logical, you will have todecideby yourself.
In 1675, the Duke of Savoy, Vittorio Amedeo II di Savoia, was nine years old. The legend tells us that he had a fragile health at birth. He suffered from digestive problems that prevented him from physical development and often fell seriously ill. His mother commanded the court doctor to find a way to feed her son.
Don Baldo di Lanzo, the court doctor, ordered the court baker Antonio Brunero to make an extremely light and crumbly bread. Antonio decided to take part of the dough and then made it into long, thin strips. After baking, the thin bread rolls became crispy and easy to absorb. Thanks to this recipe, the Duke’s health had improved. He was crowned king of Sicily in 1713. Legend says that the ghost of the Vittorio Amedeo II di Savoia, with a breadstick in his hand, is still enhabiting the rooms of the old castle where he lived.
Grissini became the favorite bread in the palace, and thus became known and appreciated by all royal people and aristocrats of that time. Napoleon also had a dependence on the grissini and wanted them to be transported to him daily directly from Turin.
Historical records mention that in 1643, the Florentine Abbot discovered a novelty in the bread – “a strange form that perfectly fits in the hand, long and slim.” If we go back in time, we can find data for a special type of bread called barotellatus, which means “a stick”. Like most foods today, we probably will never know the exact origin of the Grissini, but we can take that crunchy comfort in the heritage.
Today, grissini are still preferred by many. They exist in different length, thickness and shape. They are still unpretentious, crispy and tasty, as well as easily digestible food. For this reason, people often include them in different diets. Ladies that are really keen on losing weight say that the fastest way to do so is with grissini and water.
Grissini can be eaten by people at all ages – from toddlers, teenagers, working people to elderly grandparents.
