Sforgliatelle and Rum Baba
I have a dilemma, while Rum Baba is easy to find, Sforgliatelle is not. Rum Baba is actually French but the city of Naples has adopted it and one can wander in Naples and stop off at a coffee shop to eat some. Sforgliatelle, on the other hand, is a staple of Naples and only found in Naples. So what am I going to do, the next time I'm in Italy. I adore Sforgliatelle. The only way is to do a Sforgliatelle run the next time I'm in Rome. Take the Frecciarosa train (1 hour) from Rome to Naples, buy some and head back on the train. There's this huge shop across the street from the train station in Naples that sells both! That's a wonderful idea!
