Fabbri desserts for a special Mardi Gras celebration
Italian Carnival tradition has strong ties to Italian cuisine. The name itself derives from the Latin Carnem Levare (“to remove meat”), reflecting the fact that the Mardi Gras season precedes the period of Lent, when meat is forbidden according to Catholic tradition. Hence, in traditional celebration, the jubilation of foods that stimulate the palate, decisively underscoring the change in seasons, finishing up the food stored for the winter and calling for abundance and fertility with the onset of spring.
Today more than every, Italian culinary tradition for the Carnival season is alive and well, as the period represents the coming of warm weather and the desire to enjoy the outdoors and the wide variety of foods that Italian cuisine has to offer.
For this reason, Fabbri would like to propose a few special new recipes created by our chefs just for the occasion, to celebrate tradition and offer, as always, a bit of help to your own creativity. Here you will find recipes to replicate at the bakery and others to try right in your own home, for a delicious Carnival together with friends and family.
