The story goes that grissini was birthed in Piedmont, Italy in the 17th century. Created by a baker from Turin, Antonio Brunero, the grissini was intended for the son of King Victor Emanuel II, who was suspected to have a digestive disorder. The grissini was a light, crisp bread that was meant to help the young duke digest easier.
There is no evidence of whether or not it actually worked to improve the duke’s digestion, but the grissini grew in popularity, with bakeries attempting to outdo each other with the longest, thinnest breadsticks. Today, grissini is a staple on the Italian dinner table.
