Saint Antonio Abate

Antonio Abate Today is the feast of Saint Antonio Abate. He lived in the 3rd century AD and is the patron saint of domestic animals. In some parts of Italy the day is celebrated with bonfires but here in San Giorgio it will be a special mass today but tomorrow at a local restaurant there is a special lunch in honour of the saint.
The menu will be:

Primi:       lasagna; gnocchi with duck sauce

Secondi:  roast beef and roast pork

Dolce:     choice

All this plus wine for 25 euros.
Saint Antonio Abate may be the patron saint of domestic animals but it doesn’t stop the meal in his honour being meat heavy.
