Napoli. October, 2015

Taralli. Little savory rings of dough, flavored in any number of herbal ways -- caraway is the seasoning I've seen the most. I remember coming across taralli the first time I visited Napoli, back in 1984. I was walking along the bay in the Mergellina neighborhood and vendors were selling them along the esplanade. Since then, I've seen them in Italian-American markets. And my friend Nick has recipes for them -- both savory and sweet -- in his cookbooks. These are some large ones I spied while walking through the city's Spaccanapoli neighborhood last autumn.
