Zeppoles Up

(3.19) And the lovely Giselle has racks of them. LaSalle Bakery on Smith Street will be keeping regular store hours, but for pick-up orders and takeout only. What are you waiting for? (Check the Facebook page before leaving the house for any updates. That goes for everything everywhere.) Zeppoles — sometimes spelled zeppoli or called sfinge di San Giuseppe — are the traditional dessert served up in Italian households on St. Joseph’s Day.

The traditional Italian zeppoles are $3.69, but there is also a chocolate mousse version and, for St. Patrick’s Day, try the Bailey’s Irish cream.

St. Patrick’s Day is Tuesday. St. Joseph’s Day is Thursday, March 19.
