If you’re not familiar with St. Joseph’s Day, also known as the Festa di San Giuseppe (Feast of Saint Joseph), click HERE to find out about it!

A traditional treat for Saint Joseph’s Day is the zeppola, pictured below.  Zeppole are typical of Italian cuisine, especially that of Rome and Naples. They are also served in Sicily, Sardinia, on the island of Malta, and in Italian-American communities here in the US.  Zeppole are known by other names, including Bignè di San Giuseppe (in Rome), St. Joseph’s Day cake, and sfingi.  Some have custard filling and some cannoli filling but they’re both molto delicioso! (My fav is the cannoli filling  :D .)  If you’ve never had one, today is the day you’ll find them in many Italian bakeries…try it, you’ll like it!  I’m going out to get some later!  :)

  1. My mouth is watering…No Italian bakeries around here though. Used to have an Italian lady who would host multi-course dinner parties in her home for groups. Her food was to die for.

So........what do you think?
