Carnivaling - carnival pastry making and mask painting (tour to Murano included)

Carnivaling - carnival pastry making and mask painting (tour to Murano included)

Frittelle are the most famous dolci or sweets of Venice Carnival. Frittelle come in a variety of styles, both filled and unfilled. The very traditional “Veneziana” has no filling, but just raisins and pine nuts mixed into the fairly heavy dough. After frying, the frittelle are rolled in granulated sugar. Frittelle are followed closely in popularity by galani: puff pastries made of eggs, flour, sugar and butter that are cut in stripes and fried in boiling oil. At the end of the cooking, when they are crispy, they are dried and covered with powdered sugar. Frittelle and galani begin showing up everywhere during the weeks leading up to Carnival. When Carnival is over, frittelle and galani disappear from the store windows as quick as a flash. So the rule is: grab frittelle and galani when they are available or learn how to cook them yourself! BUT Carnival is much more: it is also masks. So why don’t you paint your own after all this hard cooking and eating work?
