Talluto’s is excited to introduce our new line of authentic Italian Taralli! Available in 4 flavors:
Traditional, Black Pepper, Fennel Seed, and Lemon Sugar. Taralli are unlike any ordinary cracker, crostini, or breadstick. Taralli are made using very simple ingredients and a special cooking procedure that contributes to their unique flavor and crunch!
It is a tradition that taralli dough is made with durum wheat flour, olive oil, white wine, and sea salt. Various other ingredients can also be added to flavor the dough; most traditionally fennel seeds or cracked black pepper. Small pieces of the dough are rolled into long strips and formed into small rings. The taralli rings are first boiled in hot water and then slowly baked for color and crunchiness. This unique process is a must and provides the taralli’s unique texture.
Talluto’s has found a baker that shares our same passion for authentic Italian food and the culture and traditions that surround it. Talluto’s taralli are handmade and freshly baked daily in New York by the Vacca family. These taralli are baked with the same passion, love, and simplicity in which authentic Italian cuisine has been defined. Taralli compliment so many of the fine products that Italy has to offer. These bite-size handmade treats are so versatile; they can be enjoyed alongside cheese and cured meat platters, as accompaniments to your favorite dips, a glass of wine, or simply by themselves. Taralli are great for children and adults alike and are a nutritious snack. Children love the traditional or the lemon sugar variety whereas, in Italy, it is customary for adults to enjoy taralli with a glass of red or white wine or a nice light beer. Taralli are the quintessential snack food of Italy. Just as the Germans have pretzels, and the Americans have potato chips, the Italians love to crunch on taralli!
