This classic appetizer showcases prosciutto's buttery texture and oaky sweetness. Simply wrapping it, unadorned, around thin, crisp grissini allows you to focus your attention on nuances you might otherwise miss. Its success will depend on your prosciutto, so look for imported Parma such as prosciutto di Rotondo or San Daniele or an excellent domestic brand such as La Quercia.
Wrap a slice of prosciutto around upper portion of each breadstick at an angle, slightly overlapping.
Cooks' note: • Grissini can be wrapped 30 minutes ahead and kept, loosely covered, at room temperature.
