  • About

These spirals of fried pastry are mostly a vehicle to hold honey or Vino Cotto. Popular in Apulia as well as in Calabria, the carteddate are one of the pastries I remember my grandmother preparing in my early childhood.

This recipe comes from Paola Pettini, a native of Rome, who now makes her home in Bari. Signora Pettini generously shared the recipes for many Barese and Apulian specialties with me.
