The origins of breadsticks date back to 1679 when a baker named Brunero Antonio, from Turin, Italy, was faced with the task of developing a bread suitable for the sick child of a king. Through much trial and error, Mr. Antonio developed crisp and delicate fingers of bread that we recognize today as breadsticks. Our imported Alessi Breadsticks are made with the same grissini torinesi (Turin style) recipe of centuries ago. We use only the highest quality ingredients, including our own Alessi Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Enjoy Alessi Breadsticks, either plain, sesame, or garlic flavored as an anytime snack.
