I've been wondering about this! In all the years I've had links with Italy and Italian people, and in all the years I've lived here, neither I nor my friends, nor the people on the Italian cookery newsgroup I follow have ever heard of this. As a linguist, I quite understand that it may well be a word invented by Italian emigrants to other countries such as Britain, the USA and Australia. But the members of my Italian newsgroup have never heard of it. Inventing words that have some of one language and some of another is quite common in immgrant communities. To identify exactly what Sompanelli really are it would help if one knew the recipe. So far we only have 'batter', and there are several versions of that in Italy, so in order for me to research a bit better so that I can send some cogent information to you, those details would help greatly. You've got me fascinated!

Unfortunately, the last time the OP posted on the forum was 1-31-2006, so it's unlikely she'll be back to give details.

As a linguist and interpreter, I'm still interested and fascinated in researching the etymology of this word, so as and when I get a result, I'll post it!

Go ahead. It will be interesting to see what you come up with. I just didn't want you waiting around for someone who is long gone to give you details
