...wondering if "tip-skimming" is a culinary technique specific to Italian cuisine.

Buon' Natale!
As often happens in Italian families, the Aunt who made the "Alige balls" never gave us the recipe. These were round zeppole with an anchovie in the center. I have had no luck in finding a recipe to compare. Crunchy on the outside, chewey on the inside---benign bread dough with that smack of salty fish...all I remember was that the dough was soft and sticky and you had to oil your hands to handle it. Do you have a recipe for this?
P.S. Loved you at the National Book Festival talking about your childrens book!
