Fascinating Flavors

O & Co: Taralli

Taralli are the traditional, ring-shaped biscuits of the Puglia region of Southern Italy. Every town in Puglia offers its own version. They are first boiled, then baked, sos that they crunch like a pretzel—but they taste like a wine cracker.

These imported, all-natural treats are made of wheat flour plus 27% extra virgin olive oil and 25% white wine. There are two flavors: Rosemary and Mediterranean, seasoned with onions, oregano, tomato and anchovies. There’s nothing fishy about these biscuits, however—just spectacular flavor.

Use it a snack cracker, for dipping (it’s natural sweetness would go well with honey mustard), or serve it with hard or soft cheeses. Taralli also make delicious croutons for soups or salads.
