Wine, Easter and the Passover: the miracle of the grape vine

Wine, Easter and the Passover: the miracle of the grape vine | CelebritizeYou | Scoop.it

Above: Giotto's "Marriage at Cana," 14th century (image via Wikipedia). We all know the story of Jesus turning water into wine at Cana, as recounted in the Gospel According to St. John. According to Jewish tradition, a marriage cannot be performed without a blessing over the wine. Had Jesus not transformed the water into wine, there would have been no marriage that day. [...]

If you're interested in wine and the bible you can read about the Wedding at Cana, Noah and others in the chapters of my soon to be released book, "Does God Drink?". If you want to pre-order, or have questions, just email me at www.larryleigon@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.

Crescia: The Easter Bread From Le Marche, Italy in Canada

Crescia: The Easter Bread From Le Marche, Italy in Canada | CelebritizeYou | Scoop.it

My Family came to Canada in 1913 from the town of Pesaro in the Province of Le Marche, Italy. Over the years, traditions were lost or no longer practiced as my ancestors blended more into the Canadian fabric. But, Crescia has always survive the test of time and it has now been alive and well for 4 generations in our Canadian family. I’m sure it’s not the same as the one my great-grandmother (Bisnonna Laura) made, but I hope it’s a close second.

Crescia is a vastly different bread, depending on the region of its origins. It can be as thin as focaccia or as high as the crescia that originated in Pesaro. The later is the one that my Family has made for generations, though it was denser and did not rise as high as the one that I make. But, it is similar in its signature ingredients of eggs, black pepper and cheese.[...]

Miracolo Gastronomico: la tradizione della Crescia di Pasqua si è perpetuata anche nei nipoti di immigrati Marchigiani in Canada e, come ci insegnano i linguisti, probabilmente anche le ricette come il dialetto si conservano in originale senza contaminazioni esotiche o etero-regionali, integre salvo per la reperibilità degli ingredienti.
