Italy and Carnival, from chatter to struffoli through the thousand regional recipes

Recipes Carnival: chatter

Italy is full of regional traditions to celebrate Carnival. From chatter to struffoli through pancakes and chestnuts: every Italian region has its sweets, simple and often fried, delights young and old.

Carnival recipes found in some regions, like Sardinia, an immense variety of pancakes, simple in composition but often complex in preparation and decoration. Like the acciuleddi, that look like little woven gold bracelets.

In Sicily, instead, it is the triumph of sweet rice pancakes soaked in hot honey or sphinxes stuffed with ricotta, while in central Italy gossip and chestnuts of all kinds dominate.
