Taralli (or tarallini) are one of the most iconic and widely consumed foods of Puglia. It is believed they were created around the 6th - 8th century and were given as gifts to the Gods. Moreish and versatile, they are a ring shaped bread snack and are perfect served with wine or cocktails at ‘aperitivo’ time – especially if accompanied by cheese and charcuterie. They can be crushed and sprinkled over salads and soups – and can substantiate a bread basket.
