For us Italians, from the Epiphany to 40 days before Easter, it’s Carnival!
Frittelle are a typical Venetian sweet fritter that in Italy is served only during Carnival time. Literally you can translate the name as “small fritters”
They look like a pakora, but the kind of process is very similar to a doughnut: yeast-risen fried dough. Frittelle in Veneto are served in a number of different forms, including Fritelle Veneziane, which are unfilled and have pine nuts and raisins stirred into the dough;
We are pleased to propose, until 5th March, a kind of frittelle typical of our City, Vicenza. Our frittelle are very soft and have Grappa (or Rum) soaked raisins stirred into the dough. As they are fried, the alcohol evaporates and the taste of the grappa or the rum gives the frittelle a unique amazing flavour!
It’s worth a try, believe me!
