Fritters

These storied sweet treats are traditionally associated with Venice carnival and they are so famous that they have appeared in paintings by Renaissance artists and the works of Carlo Goldoni.
The recipe is simple and it has essentially remained unchanged for almost eight centuries: eggs, flour, sugar, fresh ricotta, lemon and raisins are fried in oil then dusted with sugar to give the ideal level of sweetness.


Selection:
Mixed berry, chocolate, Chantilly cream, only raisins, orange and ginger, apple.


Angel wings

These thin, crumbly and bubbly crisp pastries dusted with icing sugar are the most popular sweet treats during the Italian carnival season.
It is said that their origins lie in ancient Roman times, when they celebrated Saturnalia: a period of festivities similar to carnival, when social norms were overturned and overindulgence was epitomized by sweet pastries fried in pork fat.
It goes without saying that our angel wings are handmade using locally sourced ingredients.


Ingredients:
Plain flour, UHT cream, sugar, fresh eggs, grappa and salt.


Available in packs of:
250 gr. e 200 gr.


Strudel

The name alone is enough to conjure up all sorts of marvellous memories.
The forefather of this traditional Austrian pastry was Turkish Baklava. It is made with very thin pastry that is rolled around a filling containing apples, raisins and pine nuts.

As always, our artisan recipe is completely free of preservatives. We use seasonal apples, such as Golden Delicious in the spring, Royal Gala in the summer, Golden Delicious and Fuji in the autumn and Stark in the winter.


Our selection is as follows:

  • Strudel with apples or apples and cinnamon
  • Strudel with mixed berries
  • Strudel with apples and lemon
  • Strudel with grilled apples and apricots
  • Strudel with pears and almonds

We are planning and experimenting with other recipes. If you want to try our delicious strudel, come and see us in our stores or book a home delivery.
