The visiting Neapolitans have arrived next door, and they've come bearing gifts. Among the many treats they've shared is this Christmas specialty: struffoli.
I'm quite certain that you couldn't find struffoli in the bakeries of the Veneto, but I remember it. . .mounds and mounds of it on display in bakeries in the Naples area when we lived there.
We've got our own visitors at this time as well, all the way from Virginia, and we're off to Venice this morning to see the Vitruvian Man here. Supposedly, he's only on display for a few months every seven or so years. Nice.
