Heaven Sent Breakfast…Napoli, Italy



This piece of heaven was my breakfast every morning when I was in Napoli, Italy. Every morning I would think to myself “I have to take a picture of this incredible…” and then would start eating it before I realized what I was doing!! How can anything be that flaky???

    the next time you are in Naples in Christmas time, go and take a look at Marinella shop at Via chiaia, some of those in bite size are offered with hot cocoa to all the costumers waiting in line and they are simply sinful!

    Because of fat. A Sfogliatella riccia is really heaven sent on Earth. And the secret is leaf lard used in the dough. A once in a while treat, sfogliatelle alone are worth a trip to Naples.

      Leaf lard – I had to look that up. Comes from: Leaf fat, the fat which lies in leaves or layers within the body of an animal.

    Yum. A local pastry shop calls them Lobster Tails…probably not as tasty as that one.

    • Ale

      Lobster tail and sfogliatella are two different things; although the outisde pastry is the same, the filling of sfogliatella is a mix of ricotta cheese and dried fruit, while in lobster tail the filling is either chantilly cream or chocolate. Not to mention that usually lobster tail is usually is much bigger than sfogliatella.

    A perfect fresh sfog is THE most perfect breakfast with a coffee. Lots of crispy outside, oozy ricotta little bit of lemon inside. I hunt for them here in Australia, hard to find except in tiny pockets where there are traditional Italian pasticceria.
