Galani


"Galani" are one of the many typical carnival cakes. They are made with a special dough and fried. They have many names and it's funny to notice that the sign above them indicates some of them: ciacole, grostoli, lattughe. I should suggest the shop keeper to add "fiocchi", because that's how we call them back in my hometown in Tuscany...

Verona - such a beautiful town and now I see it's filled with beautiful "fiocchi."

When a photo makes you hungry, you know it's good!

They don't look so different than the Sicilian version...good to eat no matter where in Italy I presume!

Here in Livorno they are called "cenci" (literally: rags).

In Piemonte le chiamiamo "bugie", non mi chiedere perche'! Qualunque nome abbiamo sono comunque deliziose! Ciao. Antonella

Hmm! Are they sweet or savory?

I have never seen or heard of them before.
