Happy Father's Day Michael Joseph

Today is Father’s Day in Italy (as well as Liechtenstein, Spain, Portugal, Bolivia, and Honduras) and since my dad is over 4,000 miles away, I chose to celebrate him the best way I know how: by going to Regoli for a bigne. These deep fried cream filled pastries go by the full name bigne di San Giuseppe and are made for Father’s Day, which aptly lands on the feast of St Joseph (JC’s adoptive father). So Happy Father’s Day Michael Joseph Parla. I love you Papa Parla and I swear the bigne was better than it looks!

    Magnifici i bignè di San Giuseppe di Regoli, meglio però le zeppole, che Regoli ahimè non fa!
