St. Joseph's Day Hands-On Bread Making Workshop
Families and those who love making crafts and cooking will relish an afternoon of socializing and creating beauty with dough. Join us for ritual-bread-loaf-making in preparation for St. Joseph's Day or La Festa di San Giuseppe, one of Sicily's most important feasts that takes place annually on March 18.
During the afternoon hosted by Allison Scola of Experience Sicily at Cacio e Vino, you'll learn about Sicily's traditional St. Joseph's Day bread altars and the folklore related to the spring-equinox feast. You'll make your own bread loaves, like those pictured, and at the end of the session, you'll bring home the loaves you made, which you are invited to bring back and display on the altar we'll build for the feast celebration luncheon, also at Cacio e Vino, on Sunday, March 19. (Note: the bread loaves are not meant to be eaten, but displayed as a symbol of thanksgiving to St. Joseph for supporting us through the winter.)
Ticket costs include explanation of St. Joseph's Day bread making traditions, the supplies for making the bread loaves as well as snacks, including focaccia, salami, and cheese selections (all served family-style), a glass of wine, a cappuccino or espresso, and cookies. (Tax and gratuity are also included.)
