Description Ingredients
Just as good as when they were first baked in 1679, Mario Fongo's Rubatą delight the palate with their delicate flavour and compact texture, making them ideal for the most imaginative combos.

The rubatą, traditional right down to its name, which means "fallen" in the local Piedmont dialect, is a bread-stick made by rolling over the sheet of dough so that it takes on a very dense consistency. Mario Fongo's rubatą vary in length from fifteen to thirty centimetres and have a distinctive knobbly appearance. The rubatą is the oldest form of bread-stick: the story goes that it was baked for the first time in 1679 at the Savoy court, when the court baker, Antonio Brunero, following the instructions of the physician, Teobaldo Pecchio, devised this recipe to nourish the future Vittorio Amedeo II, who was sickly and unable to digest any bread, apart from the crust. This product met with an immediate and fortunate success, so much so that one of its better-known enthusiasts was Napoleon Bonaparte, who had even organized a courier service to transport what he called les petits batons de Turin from Turin to Paris and rubatą bread-sticks continue to meet with great appreciation today, both in Italy and worldwide. For years now, Mario Fongo has been producing his rubatą , with masterly care and today, this classic of Piedmont cuisine has been interpreted in numerous tasty versions to recall the typical aromas of the Mediterranean.
