|Oil on linen on panel, 4" x 4", "St. Joseph's Pastry"|
One of the lesser known facts about St. Joseph is his status as the patron saint of pastry cooks, as well as patron saint of families. This St. Joseph's pastry is a riff on a Zeppole di San Guiseppe (as he is known in Italy). He is celebrated at Spring solstice with a Feast, traditionally held on March 19th. It is so delicious though, they are eaten year round.
