I know I haven’t posted in almost a month, but it’s summer…I just guess I’ve been busy. So, I thought today I would finally tell you about what may be my favorite all-time pastry: the Frittelle from Carrara Pastries in Moorpark,CA(I always finish them off before I can photograph them usually..woops). The Carrara website describes these Fritelles as being “also reknowned as “little balls of heaven” this pastry is rolled in sugar and filled with our fantastic cream chantilly.” This little ball of heaven is Amazing! The step-by-step play: 1. As you bite in you taste the sweetness from the sugar followed by a satisfying crunch from the shell. 2. You are overwhelmed by the vanilla silkiness and cool-to-the-tongue richness of the cream. 3. You savor whole bite for a second before slurping up the cream starting to ooze out of the pastry. 4. Dive right back in and repeat!
Now, besides being of the utmost highest quality, these pastries are under $2 each and are about the size of a fist! Talk about bang for your buck! They are the perfect size for feeling satisfied after finishing. I like eating mine chilled…perfect for the summer months. If you are ever in Los Angeles or the surrounding valley, I highly recommend making the trip. When my family had friends visiting internationally, they even asked if we would take them back the pastry shop so they could buy some to take on the plane with them!!!
