May the light of Hanukkah illuminate your lives as you celebrate this holiday with one of our traditional Sephardic fried “Piticas“
Piticas are crisp, thin, deep-fried pastries, drizzled generously with a warm honey syrup fragrant with orange-blossom water. The ethereal Rhodes Island-style Sephardic pastries are topped with almonds or pistachios, crunchy sesame seeds with a dusting of cinnamon. Piticas make a magnificent dessert stacked high on a platter and are sensational served on their own or with a scoop of your favorite ice cream and berries.
These festive sweet treats are traditionally made for Hanukkah too!
