Start Making Your Cuccìa For Santa Lucia Now

Sunday, Dec. 13 is the Feast of Santa Lucia. For those who wish to make cuccìa (pictured) with Alessia of Smile and Food during our online feast event (Details and registration at ), you should start planning now.

Your farro (wheat berries) need to soak in water for 72 hours (and change the water periodically) before Sunday, and then before we meet at noon, you’ll need to boil it for two hours.
