There are many stories as to the origin of grissini (italian for breadsticks). One favourite story is that a baker in turin in the 1660s shaped them out of bread dough in response to a request by the local savoy duke who suffered from indigestion. This recipe of grissini is made without using yeast and is very quick to prepare. Store them in an air-tight container. They may need to be refreshed in a hot oven before serving. These onion and pepper flavoured sticks are great to serve with soup or a dip or just to be eaten on their own.
