I DOLCI FRITTI
Make every weekend through 2021 a celebration with I Dolci Fritti, featuring fried pastry treats starting Friday at 12 p.m. through to Sunday and every holiday at Il Gran Caffè and Caffè Vergnano. Each month, our pastry chefs will take you on a journey through Italy with a new regional offering, highlighting local specialties, seasonal ingredients, and Italian holiday favourites. Whether you’re indulging in a special treat or sharing sweets with friends and family, do as the Italians do and get your dolci fritti this weekend!
For the month of January, we’re travelling to Basilicata – a southern Italian region bordered by Calabria and Puglia – to highlight Ravioli di Ricotta e Cioccolato, lightly-fried ravioli filled with cow ricotta, chocolate, and orange zest. A comfort food typically enjoyed between Christmas and Easter, these sweet ravioli are typically filled with ricotta because of the abundance of the product following the holiday season. Try it this January before it’s gone!
