Traditional savory and baked products from Puglia.
Tarallini are one of the culinary symbols of Puglia and among its most representative typical products. In particular, traditional Puglian salted tarallini and “alla contadina” tarallini are among the most beloved and sought after both in Italy and abroad.
Traditional Salted Puglian Tarallini
Traditional Puglian salted tarallini are made with typical Puglian flour, olive oil, yeast, salt, and water.
The dough is worked until it reaches a soft and homogeneous consistency, then cut into small pieces, knotted, and finally baked in the oven. The end result is a fragrant, crispy, and intensely flavored tarallino.
The secret to the goodness of traditional Puglian salted tarallini lies in the quality of the ingredients used. Puglian flour, for example, is characterized by a high protein content and a low gluten content, which gives the tarallini a unique texture.
Additionally, the olive oil used in the preparation is a fundamental ingredient that gives the product a strong and aromatic taste.
Tarallini “alla Contadina”
Tarallini “alla contadina” are a variant of traditional Puglian salted tarallini, but enriched with other ingredients. In particular, in addition to Puglian flour, olive oil, yeast, and salt, onion and tomato are also added. These ingredients give the tarallini a more intense and pronounced flavor, perfect for accompanying a good glass of red wine.
