Fritoe aea Venessiana
Frittelle are an ancient preparation, apparently already known in Ancient Rome as “frictilia”.
In more modern times, and under the Venetian influence, frittelle spread a little everywhere, becoming a typical sweet treat in many regions. In Italy these fritters recipe varies slightly from town to town, taking a different name depending on the area.
We love to prepare the traditional original version of Frittelle alla Veneziana during our cooking classes, above all during Carnival time in Venice.
Monica can I make this recipe the night before and refrigerate? I have so much to do on Christmas Day
You can prepare all the recipe, (frying included), and eat it the day after, just keep them in an air tight container once fried. But so you know, no Italians would ever make it for Christmas – it is a Carnival tradition. Ciao
