If you can’t afford to travel to Italy this summer, then head into the North End of Boston on August 30th and 31st for Saint Anthony’s Feast. You will feel like you have been transported to a small town in Italy, where you can listen to Italian music while strolling through the streets and sampling authentic Italian favorites like arancini, zeppole, and of course, my favorite, cannoli’s. All weekend long there is also a Culinary Stage and Tasting Tent, featuring some of the best local chefs, plus olive oil tastings with freshly baked local breads. At noon on Sunday the 31st, there is the grand procession of the statue of Saint Anthony, along with Italian street bands and local school marching bands. I've been fortunate to be able to experience “The Feast” from a local perspective, sharing homemade Italian foods like stuffed calamari and sausage, peppers and onions, from the doorstep of my great-uncle’s house, while watching the parade pass by. These truly are memories that I will always cherish.
