Festa di San Giuseppe

In Italy, today is the Festa di San Giuseppe, and it's also the day that fathers are celebrated. All over Italy, and especially down here in the south, families will be getting together for a delicious lunch and will be giving small gifts to their dads, just like we do in the UK.

There's one particular thing that Italians like to eat today (yes, there's always a specific food for every occasion!) and that's the Zeppola. A fried or baked ring of dough served with chocolate and a type of custard, this sweet treat is incredibly yummy. Before lunch on March 19th, the bars and bakeries are full of people buying dozens of the things. And rightly so, because it's hare to stop at just one...
