Joy is different than pleasure, however you might want to delineated the two words and what they describe, and even if joy can bring to toward an encounter with pleasure. They wrap you up, those moments of encounter, the places, scents, where boundaries melt and what you do confounds entirely in what is lost, in what you, plural, are. Repeat: you plural. Joy is always shared, both within and without.
A thousand different names, a million different variations, all derived from ancient times, likely as soon as people learned to mix flour and liquid into a dough, roll it out, fry it, and sweeten it. Certainly a version was already well known in ancient Rome: frictilia. Apicius mentions them as a cheap and delicious street food passed out to people celebrating Saturnalia.
In particular there was Brazilian chef, Hindrigo Lorran (Kiko), who would create multi course extravagant meals featuring Mediterranean palette cuisine.

Post-modernists instead had to deal with a present void, the horrors of what had happened, a nothingness beneath that threatened to devour our precarious existence above. So lightness, ‘leggerezza’, as the Italians say, became an important theme in post-modernism, in contrast to ‘heavy’, certain characters and contexts.
