The oldest established Jewish community is in Rome, where these Italian-style Sufganiyot are an annual tradition. Made with rich ricotta, they’re sure to please the entire family. Italy has been home to a very large Jewish community since ancient times. Italian Jews have introduced much of their cuisine to Italians, and similarly much of Italy’s wine and food have influenced Jewish foods. These delicacies are not only served for Hanukkah, but also for Venetian Carnevale, and by other Italian regions for religious and non-religious events.
