The rustic Neapolitan tarallo, made of  ‘nzogna (lard), pepper and toasted almonds, is a true delicacy. It can be considered the first popular snack in Naples, a bite that combines the punch of black pepper with the sweetness of almonds, the whole united by lard.

Taralli are offered to celebrate a new home, shared with friends during soccer matches, enjoyed with one’s significant other on the rocky shore, given to guests at parties, taken aboard boats (it’s the very height of yuppiness to eat them accompanied by iced beer or  spumante while out at sea).

It is tradition to eat hot taralli in Mergellina, along Naples’ coast. You buy taralli and beer at the kiosks on the waterfront and sit on the rocks, watch the sunset and while away the evening without a worry.

Be careful, though – the tarallo can be habit-forming. As soon as you taste one, you might have to polish off the whole tray.
