Today I brought a crispy and hearty snack for you: Grissini. A true finger food classic and perfect for mild spring or summer evenings with a glass of wine. In keeping with the season, I refined it with wild garlic. The best thing about it, the breadsticks are easy to prepare and ideal for other sourdough, because this can be processed here as desired. ... ♥
Grissini - Italian nibbles
Baked crispy, crumbly and golden-yellow - this is how breadsticks should be. They are the ideal Mediterranean snack with a good glass of wine or a cold beer. They are an integral part of many Italian restaurants as an appetizer. Traditionally, breadsticks are shaped by hand and often offered in a twisted shape. However, I opted for the simple, smooth shape, as in my recipe template. But more on that later. In addition to the classic breadsticks, there are also variants with sesame, spices, herbs or caraway seeds. There are no limits to the imagination and I think what tastes good is allowed. So, in keeping with the season, I decided to go for wild garlic in a very “un-Italian” way. And I can tell you so much: delicious!
A food blog event
Last summer Volker had von Volkermampft launched a great food blogger event: “Cook my recipe” is the name of the project. Similar to elves, different (food) blogs are assigned to one another by lot, and this is done anew every two months. You can then choose a recipe from the associated blog, copy it and freely interpret it. A really great initiative to get to know new blogs, introduce each other and network. The recipes for "Bread chips | spicy snack & bread recovery" and the "Tarte flambée with pears, camembert & walnuts”Here on the blog were created as part of this event. On the last lap I missed. This time the lot fell for me and then directly on Volker's own blog.
On Volker's extensive blog you can find a wide variety of recipes with international cuisine, bread, pastries and many delicious main dishes. He also organizes many blog (ger) events on various topics. Travel reports and restaurant tips can also be found here. The restaurant tips and tests mainly focus on Hamburg and the surrounding area, as Volker lives in Hamburg.
Grissini with and without wild garlic
The choice of the recipe was quite difficult for me this time because a large number of his recipes are of interest to me. Ultimately, I made a compromise between two recipes: Wild garlic sourdough breadsticks and Sourdough grissini - perfect for refreshment leftovers. The result is breadsticks that can be prepared either with fresh herbs such as wild garlic or with leftover sourdough. Wild garlic now fits perfectly into spring, of course, and the rather short wild garlic time needs to be exploited. I also have mine Lievito Madre because it fits perfectly into such Italian-inspired recipes!
In addition, I spontaneously used Italian flour instead of a type 550 wheat flour like Volker. In this case, that laNapoletana Tipo 00 (Pizza flour) and Semola Rimacinata di Grano Duro from the Molino Dallagiovanna. I baked with both of them for the first time - they had already waited a while for their first use. So I took the opportunity and spontaneously prepared the breadsticks with it. The first test was very promising! A wonderfully smooth dough that was very easy to work with and without any autolysis. With other pizza flours / Tipo 00 I have already seen that they do not make such a nice, smooth dough, especially not without extensive autolysis. As always, I have included German flour as an alternative in the recipe.
Admittedly, I like to avoid “fiddly” pastries. After all, every stick needs to be shaped and is then fed up at Cookie and Co. faster than I can see. But it wasn't that bad and it was even fun. It was definitely worth it and the breadsticks were more than delicious! I can also imagine it very well with rosemary or garlic in summer. Without Volker, I would have put off such a recipe for a long time, even though I had wanted to make breadsticks myself for a long time.
It is very important that they are really completely baked through! This should definitely be taken into account, because every oven bakes differently and the breadsticks are also of different thicknesses. This is the only way to make them crispy and crumbly! If in doubt, bake a little too long rather than too short. Otherwise they can become sticky very quickly and that would be a shame! In any case, it is worth re-baking ... in this sense, have fun trying it out ... ♥Print
