Hand-rolled breadsticks

With extra virgin olive oil

Ancient Piedmontese recipe


Brusa's gourmet Grissini are hand rolled with extra virgin olive oil and naturally leavened to obtain a light and tasty product.

The "ghersìn", or small "ghersa", is an all-Piedmontese crunch that takes its name from the long loaves of bread once eaten in the Turin area. The origins of the breadstick are noble and interesting: legend has it that the young Vittorio Amedeo of Savoy, the future king of Italy, was known for his poor appetite from birth and that his growth was stunted because he could not digest breadcrumbs. So Antonio Brunero, the court baker, had the idea of taking the bread dough, rolling it out into long sticks and baking it until it dried out and became crispy. This overcooked bread was light and easy to digest. Not only did it help Vittorio Amedeo grow, but it was also such a success that it knew no geographical limits. Even Napoleon could not resist the 'petites batons de Turin', so much so that he always wanted to receive them fresh from the capital of Piedmont.

Enjoy these Gourmet Grissini on their own or with an excellent fresh cheese!
