Signs of spring: It's Zeppole time!!!
Just saw the sign in the window at Molisana. Woohoooo, my favourite time of the year!
I just bought some on Upper Lachine Road yesterday. $3/each mind you.
The sign at Molisana is a great reminder (to go somewhere else to buy Zeppole...theirs are soooo gross -oily and taste like they are filled with sweet lard)
Went by Alati Caserta ( 277 Dante ) on my way to JTM they have both traditional and new style cone variety in both cream and ricotta.They were delicious I think even better than Roma on St Laurent Blvd.While there they have great Canoli's and Walnut cake.This is a traditional Italian Patisserie that is family run and proud of there products.
Today I tried the zeppole at boulangerie Clark (29, rue Saint-Viateur Ouest). I'm no expert, in fact this is my first zeppole ever, but I really enjoyed it. Basically a large profiterole with ricotta filling. The pastry was as described: tough but light. Thin, but doesn't fall apart like a flaky pastry would. This allows for maximum cream stuffing, and boy was there a lot of it.
I'm getting more tomorrow... :-x
