Fried dough is found in many cultures and in many forms. Growing up my grandma used to make Serbian krofne, which are like beignets. There is something universally appealing about frying dough.

In the North End during the summer, there are festivals called feasts that celebrate Patron Saints from various regions in Italy. During the feasts, there are  parades, live entertainment, street food, and of course, fried dough


Duff Goldman from the Food Network went to Daddy's Fried Dough (established 1991) to try it out for himself.

Here is a schedule of the North End Feasts for 2015.
