Gnocco fritto

Emilia Romagna is a region well known for its amazing stuffed pasta, and its pork products, so we thoroughly enjoyed eating our way across the region. On our first day in Bologna, we experienced gnocco fritto for the first time, and I believe we ordered it every day after during our stay, it was just that good. Just imagine airy light puffs of fried dough that served with prosciutto and other salami. The dough puffs are served warm, and when enjoyed with prosciutto, the heat of the dough warms up the prosciutto just enough to bring out the flavor of the meat.
