Wine Tip

Grauburgunder, dry, 2011
A dry Grauburgunder harmonizes well with the sesame in this dish. It’s fruity body gives the grissini a certain crispiness.

Sprinkle grissini with sesame seeds. Ideally, roll the grissini in the sesame seeds so they stick better. Place the sticks onto a lined baking tray, cover, and leave to rise in a warm place for 20 min.
