This month's recipes will be dedicated to Carnevale: this fun festival, celebrated all over Italy during the six days preceding Ash Wednesday, ends 40 days before Easter, marking the beginning of the restrictions of Lent. Camevale is traditionally celebrated with parades, masquerade balls, entertainment, music, and parties. Children throw coriandoli (confetti), mischief and pranks at each other hence the saying: "A carnevale ogni scherzo vale" (anything goes at Carnevale). Maschere (masks), and costumes are an essential part of this colorful festival. Venezia is home of the most beautiful hand crafted carnival masks and most elaborate 18th century cos- tumes. The city of Cento, in Emilia Romagna, is linked to the famous Carnevale of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: the winning float in the Cento parade gets to represent Italy in this traditional festival. The city of Viareggio, in Toscana holds one of the big- gest Camevale celebrations in Italy and it's known for its giant, allegorical parades of paper mach~ floats. Chiacchiere are tra- ditional Carnevale treats. Interestingly, their name changes in relation to their region of origin: for example Chiacchiere is what they are called in Lombardia, Cenci in Toscana, Frappe in Lazio, Crostoli in Trentino, Gale in Veneto and Bugie in Piemonte. Chiacchiere di Carnevale 4 large eggs 2.5 cups of flour (plus 4 tbsp sugar additional flour for the 4 tbsp olive oil work surface) Grated zest of i lemon Frying oil 1 tsp of anise off or extract Powdered sugar for garnishing Preparation: in a mixer or bowl, mix all the ingredients together to make a smooth and elastic dough. Using a roll- ing pin, roll out the dough onto a floured surface. The dough should be roiled out very thin (about 1/16 inch). Using a knife or a pastry-cutting wheel, cut into 1-inch wide strips, 3 to 4 inches long. Heat up a large pot with the frying oil and deep-fry several strips at a time. The final result should be golden crispy strips with a bubbled surface. Once cooked, removed with a slotted spoon or a strainer and let cool on paper towel. Once cool, dust the frappe with powdered sugar. Buon appetito! Chiacchiere di Carnevale 4 uova 1 cucchiaino di estratto 4 cucchiai di zucchero d'anice 4 cucchiai di olio d'oliva 300 g di farina La buccia grattugiata di un Olio per friggere limone Zucchero a velo q.b. per guarnire Preparazione: in un mixer o in un recipiente mescola bene gli ingredienti fino a formate una pasta liscia e uniforme. Su un piano da lavoro leggermente infarinato, spiana la pasta con un mattarello fmo ad ottenere uno strato molto sottile. Con una rotellina a taglio smerlato o con un coltello taglia delle strisce di 2mm di spessore, 2 cm di larghezza e 10 cm di lunghezza. Riscalda bene rolio in una pentola a bordi alti e friggi le chiacchiere fino a farle diventare dorate e con la superficie a bolle tipica di questi dolci. Trasferisci su della carta assorbente e fai raffreddare. Cospargi con dello zucchero a velo e servi. Buon appetito!
