Snacks are great! Mini treats that tide us over until our main meals. Crosta & Mollica were kind enough to send me the latest edition to their snack range, Bolli, to try for my snack time treat. Made to a traditional recipe with wheat flour, potato and virgin olive oil, Bolli which means ‘stamps’ in Italian, was the name given to these crackers by bakers in Northern Italy because of their distinctive shape. I ate mine with some black olives and Camembert cheese, the only thing missing was some white wine and it would have been perfect.
The crackers are flavour-filled and the pack portions are generous. As you can see this is just over a handful of crackers and it was an ample portion for me.
These crisp braked Italian crackers are infused with black pepper and are perfect for dipping. One thing that struck me most about Bolli is that they are far from boring, the kick of the pepper and the texture of the crackers makes them ideal for canape creations too. You can even eat them plain, as they really are quite yummy. I still have plenty left and will try with some smoked salmon & cream cheese or hummus or anything else more daring!
You can find Bolli and other Crosta & Mollica’s products in Waitrose.
