Italian Taralli

Italian Taralli

A quick and simple Italian doughnut shaped breadstick. Italian Taralli are particularly good served with Aioli and a side of green olives. Forza Italia!

PREP TIME: 1hr 15m
Yield: Makes 20


  • 150g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Life of Spice The Italian Job
  • 75 ml Dry White wine
  • 75 ml Olive oil


  1. In a bowl, mix the Life of Spice The Italian Job into the flour and then add the flour and Olive oil. Stir together until a firm dough is formed.
  2. Form the dough into a ball, cover the bowl with cling film and leave at room temperature for 1 hour.
  3. Split the dough into 2 portions and roll each dough portion into a long 1/2 inch diameter sausage.
  4. Cut the sausage into 5 inch lengths, and then create a circle with each piece by pinching the ends together.
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 175℃ (350℉).
  6. Bring a large pan of salted water to boil.
  7. In small batches, add the taralli to the boiling water and wait for them to cook for 1-2 minutes. They are ready to take out when they rise to the surface. Take them out, pat them dry with kitchen roll, and place them on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
  8. Bake the taralli in the oven for 45 minutes until they are lightly browned.
  9. Serve on their own or with your favourite dips.

Perfect for the festive cold months, irresistible when warm and gooey, but even better after a few days later when they get to their optimum texture - If they last that long!
