Speaking of tradition, March 19th is celebrated throughout Italy as a day of honoring and giving thanks to Saint Joseph the patron saint of workers and artisans. 

The Saint Joseph’s Day celebrations are especially festive in Sicily. Here, Saint Joseph is credited with saving Sicily from starvation in the Middle Ages. It was during a severe drought,when crops were failing and families were starving, people prayed to St. Joseph to help them by sending rain

To mark the occasion, many Sicilians eat fava beans which are in season in mid-March. Then to finish with something sweet it’s ZEPPOLE DI SAN GIUSEPPE! buona cucina, buon appetito!
