Frittole is an Italian fried doughnut type of food made from dough, typically with raisins, orange peels, or lemon peel in it. They are eaten in and around the Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Veneto regions. However, they originated around the Giuliani areas of Trieste and Venice. Many variations are common, including custard and chocolate fillings. [1][2] They are fried in oil until golden brown and sprinkled with sugar. They are included in the British Museum Cookbook by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson[3] and a book about Venice from 1879.[4] A Vendita Frittole is a fritter and liquor shop. [5]
