Bisse Degli Ebrei

The Bisse, Italian Oil cookies, are one of the most typical sweet treats from the Jewish Ghetto of Venice.

They are usually prepared for Passover, but nowadays you can find them in the Ghetto pretty much all year round. They are unleavened Italian oil cookies, with a dry but crumbly consistency, in the shape of a flat S.

Their name comes from the word Bissa, which in Venetian means Grass Snake.

This and many more Italian dessert recipes can be learnt during our cooking classes in Venice.
