Italian Poster for The Famous Venetian Biscotti "BAICOLI"

More Views

A beautiful poster ca. 1930 for the famous Venetian Biscotti, by Colussi. The caption reads: Baicoli (golden oval) is an Italian biscuit, originating in Venice. Baicoli gains their name because their shape resembles that of sea bass, which in local dialect is called baicoli.

These biscuits were created as a ship's biscuit, for long sea voyages by Venetian boats. Being very dry, these biscuits maintain their consistency for a long duration, when stored correctly in the distinctive yellow tin boxes in which they are traditionally sold. Their preparation, which is long and complicated, has two acts of leavening and double baking. Today, Baicoli is served with coffee and zabaglione, in which they could be dipped.
