CARNIVAL IS UPCOMING – PARA FRITUS FOR YOUR SWEET TOOTH

The doughnut-like sweets are called “Para frittus” in Sardinia, which literally means “fried priests”. The origin of their name is unclear, but some say that the hole in the middle of the doughnut recalls the tonsure of the monks, while others claim that the white horizontal line in the middle of the doughnut looks like the cord of the monks’ dress.
During the Carnival Para Fritus are served everywhere in Sardinia. Although each region has its own recipe and shape, this specialty always taste great, whether plain or filled. Buon appetito!
