Enjoying Zeppole di San Giuseppe in Padua / Padova
Zeppole di San Giuseppe are delicious choux pastry doughnuts filled with vanilla cream and decorated with an amaranth cherry. Usually prepared for Saint Joseph’s Day on March 19th, you can guilt-free enjoy them year-round in Italy. In Padua, I enjoyed my first Zeppole di San Giuseppe at Pasticceria Graziati and I definitely enjoyed it. Additionally, the Pasticceria, the bakery, has a lovely cafe with a gorgeous outside sitting area right next to Palazzo della Ragione in the historic centre of Padova. Highly recommended! Besides my creamy doughnut, I had a Caffe con pallina di gelato, another recommendation! If you’re looking for a recipe for the delicious treat, I can recommend christinascucina.
