Strauben


In South Tyrol there is no village festival without Strauben !




The "Strauben" are served with powdered sugar and cranberry.

"Strauben" is it?! Yes, it does look like a big version of what I know from the American South as funnel cakes. There it is typical fair food.

Hi Karl, that looks just like the sort of food that I love, but should not eat. Were I closer to Bolzano I would be sorely tempted.

It looks very much like a cookie my mother used to make. The cookies were smaller but they looked the same.

Strauben reminds me very much of a Swedish fried doughy treat covered with powdered sugar that she made, usually at Christmas, I think. Very, very good!

"Taken" has it right. It looks like great food, but not food that I should eat . . .
