La Festa di San Giuseppe

March 19th marks La Festa di San Giuseppe, or the Feast of Saint Joseph. This Italian Father’s Day is celebrated with parades and altar decorations dedicated to San Giuseppe, especially in cities with large Italian-American communities. Traditionally, St. Joseph’s Day is celebrated with a table full of elaborate, delicious, and largely meatless foods. Here’s one of my favorite St. Joseph’s day recipes: St. Joseph’s Fig Cookies, or Biscotti ai Fichi di San Giuseppe.
