Taralli bianchi

Taralli bianchi are a traditional Italian snack that can be found in the region of Calabria. Specifically, they are popular in towns and communes such as Cosenza, Reggio Calabria, and Catanzaro. These crunchy, ring-shaped biscuits are commonly sold in local stores and shops, including Pasticceria De Rose in Cosenza and Panificio La Rosa in Reggio Calabria.

One popular recipe for taralli bianchi involves mixing flour, white wine, olive oil, salt, and fennel seeds. The dough is then shaped into rings and boiled briefly before being baked until golden and crispy. Another variation includes adding black pepper or chili flakes for a spicier flavor.

Taralli bianchi have received the prestigious PAT (Traditional Agri-Food Product) recognition, which guarantees their traditional production methods and high-quality ingredients. According to the specifications, these snacks must be made with durum wheat flour, white wine, extra virgin olive oil, and fennel seeds. They should have a characteristic ring shape and a crunchy texture.
