similar to breadsticks, crackers and pretzels all combined into one - Taralli are round coils of dough made
with flour, water, olive oil, and white wine. Taralli originated in southern
Italy but are increasingly available all over Italy. Many variations are now
available, the most common of which is the addition of fennel seeds to the
classic Taralli, which gives them an anise flavor. Excellent with dips, cheeses
or an ‘aperitivo’, the New
York Times likens Taralli to the
potato chips of America, a defining cultural snack.
