  • About

These crisp, buttery cookies are a specialty of the Carnia region, a subdivision of the Friuli that includes the provinces of Udine, Gorizia, and Pordenone.

Esse di Raveo (essis di Ravièi in the local dialect) are quickly made and keep well in a tin. Commercialized versions of the esse are found in Udine and other parts of the Carnia, but these are a purely homemade type.
