Did you know?

  • Beans have a well-deserved reputation of being the musical fruit unless you eat them regularly. The more often you eat beans, the less gas you’ll have
  • In Tuscany, a Ricotta Gnocchi with Spinach is called Strozzapreti which translates to “priest-stranglers”. Apparently, a priest choked to death after eating the dish too quickly because it was so wonderful
  • It is believed that Grissini were invented to prevent spread of disease. Around 1675, the young Duke Vittorio Amadeo di Savoia was so sick he couldn’t keep anything down so Carlo Emanuele II asked a baker from Turin, Antonio Brunero, to create something that the young duke could digest. The request was for something ‘long, light and subtle’. From his ovens, Antonio produced a thin crispy breadstick called ‘Ghersino’, a smaller version of ‘Ghersa’, which was a long thin bread. The young Duke ate the breadsticks until he recovered from his illness, thus saving the monarchy and also initiating a new food sensation to the country
