Long, crispy, thin breadsticks like these grissini are laid right on the tablecloth at many Piedmontese restaurants.
Make Ahead Tip: Tightly wrap cooled breadsticks in plastic wrap and keep for up to 5 days.
Shopping tip: White whole-wheat flour, made from a special variety of white wheat, is light in color and flavor but has the same nutritional properties as regular whole-wheat flour. Find it in large supermarkets or online from kingarthurflour.com.
Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.
