WHAT IS TARALLI
The origin of the taralli recipe dates back to 1400. According to the legend, the first tarallo was kneaded by a mother who, not having enough to feed her children, tried to knead what she had in her pantry: flour, extra virgin olive oil, salt, white wine. The dough was then flattened into two thin strips, giving them the appearance of a ring which, after rising, was baked in the oven.
With time, the recipe was improved: the tarallo was not only baked in the oven, in order to give it that characteristic smoked aftertaste, but it was also boiled, in order to boil it and make it more crispy and crumbly.
