Naples - Being a pastry lover, I had heard about the ubiquitous Neapolatin pastry in Naples called Sfogliatelle.

And once I tried I bite, that's the only word you need to know when traveling in Naples. Well, pizza as well.

Sfogliatelle has a delicate, crunchy pastry shell shaped like a large clam. The filling is a sweetened ricotta cheese.
Layers of deliciousness!
As soon as I ate one for breakfast, I immediately was wondering how to create that type of layered pastry shell, which reminded me of thin apple slices created by a hand crank device.

Well, if you are traveling in Naples, all you need to know is the word: Sfogliatelle.

Here are several Neapolatin pastry shops recommended by food blogger Katie Parla.

we have a place here in the city that makes excellent sfogliatelles. they add apricots or pineapple to the ricotta. they are sooooo good! so, are there any local favorite foods you are eating while you are home?

Coincidence - I was just reading about these in an in-flight magazine. Now I have to find some.

@Joyce, I haven't had as much time to get out and about as I usually do. Someone has to be with dad 24/7, so I have been doing a lot of cooking. Healthy grilled pork chops are still tasty! :-)

I highly recommend these tasty treats wherever you find them, but especially in Naples.
