St. Patrick's Day is a festive occasion celebrated worldwide, with green-colored attire, leprechauns, Irish music, and traditional Irish food. In Italy, March 19th is the feast day of St. Giuseppe (Joseph), which is also widely celebrated. Bella Nonna’s in Maple Ridge is fusing the two together for a memorable St. Patrick's Day Feast with the addition of some Italian delights!
One dish that you should try is St. Joseph Fritters, commonly prepared on this day. These are delightful, crunchy fried dough balls filled with vanilla cream, a European twist on traditional American donuts. Light, airy, and not overly sweet, these fritters will undoubtedly leave you craving more.
To balance the savory delights of St. Joseph Fritters, Bella Deli & Grocer also features shamrock cookies, a tribute to Saint Patrick's Day! These cookies are cut out in the shape of a lovely clover, decorated with green sugary icing, and perfect for snacking with a cup of warm tea or coffee.
But wait, there is more! In addition to the shamrock cookies, Bella Nonna’s has also come up with the "pot of gold" cookies. These cookies are an absolute treat and make for excellent tasty decorations on your dining table.
So, what are you waiting for? This St. Patrick's Day, head over to Bella Nonna’s Deli & Grocer in Maple Ridge to indulge in some fantastic food and sweet treats.
