I ZUCAREN (zuccherini biscuits)

Zuccherini are biscuits spread in Emilia-Romagna and in Tuscany. In Romagna, zuccherini do not have a doughnut shape as they do in Emilia and in Tuscany; they are different, preferably almond-shaped, covered with granulated sugar or with minced almonds. In Romagna, zuccherini were also prepared in wood-fired ovens in the past for particular celebrations such as baptisms, communions and confirmations.


In Romagna, like in other parts of Italy, Carnival is a celebration of folklore with masks, fancy costumes and floats, as well as a celebration of traditional sweets, which are often deep fried.


The ‘sabadoni’ are the typical cakes of Massa Lombarda and they are celebrated with a yearly fair. Their name comes from ‘saba’, which is their main ingredient; ‘saba’ is a dark liquid which is obtained by boiling must of grapes.
