Stoneham, MA. March, 2013

Each year at this time, we have the battle of the saints. For the Irish, Saint Patrick’s Day is March 17. But two days later, Saint Joseph takes center stage. And nowhere is that stage more apparent than in Italian-American homes. Specifically Sicilian-American homes, and specifically those homes’ kitchens. Such as this one in the home of my friend Paul. His mother’s cooking cannot be beat. Seen here, just some of the delights we enjoy in this annual event: frittatas of potato and asparagus, pasta with breadcrumbs, sausages. Preceded by a never-ending antipasto, followed by fruit and zeppole pastries. Oh, maybe just one more bite.
