Happy San Giuseppe's Day!

Today, in Italy is the equivalent of Father's Day here in America. Its a religious holiday honoring Joseph the father of Jesus. The day is often celebrated with great food, and incredible pastries, often called, St. Joseph's pastries. I wish you all a great St. Joseph's Day today and don't forget to kiss your fathers, brothers, cousins, etc. Auguri!

Italian - American Boy here. I did not see you mention what has become a traditional pastry at this time. The St. Joseph Pastry- a filled zepoli (sp?). The pastry is usually a custard filled pastry, sometimes topped with a cerry or just powered sugar.
I also did not see if you server a traditional St. Joseph's dinner which would include breads and pasta.
