Together with my friend and colleague in Sicily, Alessia of Smile and Food, we’ll be teaching you how to make rice balls (Arancini) and cuccia (sweet farro traditionally eaten for the feast) as well as discussing the traditions of the Festa di Santa Lucia–like, for example, why rice balls and what exactly is cuccia and why do Sicilians eat these dishes for Santa Lucia?!

When: Sunday, December 13 at 12 noon Eastern

Who: Special Guest Alessia Liistro of Smile & Food who will be live from her kitchen in Siracusa, Sicily
