These lovely, light and airy fritters have a gorgeous golden colour and are an important part of the street-food tradition connected to Carnevale. During this festival, fried goodies are available to warm and cheer all passing revellers. All over Italy, the art of deep-frying is highly respected. People usually do this sort of cooking either outdoors or on a balcony in order to prevent the house from being pervaded by the smell of frying. In Italy, the sounds and smells of the sizzling and bubbling of the frying process are often associated with the atmosphere of fun and partying. Serve these classic Venetian sweet treats with strong coffee, a chilled dessert wine or a helping of luscious ice cream.
