Carnevale Menu, Tutto Fritto

Why stop with just special desserts for the carnevale celebration?  There are also plenty of frying going on during this time and it doesn’t stop with desserts.  Frittata, fried stuffed vegetables and fried meats, like fried veal in the cotoletta alla milanese are other classic recipes to follow during this time of indulgence before giving up meat ( carne = meat ; vale = farewell ) – the Catholic tradition before Easter.
