Recipe for Italian Carnival Castagnole

How to Make Italy’s Typical Carnevale Sweets

In Italy, most holidays and celebrations warrant their own dish or delicacy which is prepared especially for the time of year. Carnival time is no exception and the month of February sees Rome coated in sugar as the city’s bakeries and pasticcerie are piled high with cream-packed pastries and deliciously decadent dolci.

Why Take a Food Tour in Rome?

As you meet the producers and purveyors of Roman cuisine and see where the locals shop and eat, you gain a unique glimpse into the Italian lifestyle that standard sightseeing of monuments, museums and churches cannot provide.
