A frittela

A frittela is a deep fried pastry and it’s something you’ll often find at Italy’s Christmas fairs, but not only.

It’s a kind of deep fried bread, which is then coated in sugar. Not great for diets, or teeth, but for some Italians, having a fritella is a not to be missed annual event. Kids love them too.

They are cooked in front of you and served baking hot – just the thing to keep the winter cold at bay.

You tend to find you become almost as sugar coated as a frittela are after eating one – and you’ll probably end up with sticky little fingers too.

This is a frittela:
