Breadsticks are generally pencil-sized sticks of crisp, dry bread originating in Turin and the surrounding area in Italy. They are originally thought to have been created in the 14th century.
Breadsticks may be offered at the table in restaurants as an appetizer or may also be combined with ingredients such as prosciutto as an hors d'œuvre.
Prosciutto or Parma ham is a dry-cured ham that is usually thinly sliced and served uncooked; this style is called prosciutto crudo in Italian. Hors d'oeuvre literally means "apart from the main work"
or the first course, are food items served before the main courses of a meal.
