Typical Specialities for Carnival in Tuscany

Right after the last Christmas festivities with the befana on 6th January you will find everywhere at Confectioner’s and the baker’s the typical carnival’s specialities.

The most famous of all these specialities are the Cenci, rectangular fried and with sugar dusted  pastry stripes. Cencio means floorcloth, which comes maybe from their  form. Locally, these crispy pastries can also be found under the name Donzelle or Chiacchiere.

Just as popular are the so called Bomboloni, small donuts, simply dusted with sugar or also filled with vanilla or chocolate cream.
