  • About

Although these biscuits have an unhappy association, they are tender and tasty. The name refers to the time during which a bereaved family receives callers and serves them these biscotti with a glass of wine. In Campania and the Basilicata, these customs survive in out-of-the-way mountain villages that still cling to ancient traditions.
