Inside the nave, 10 tables were covered with red and white tablecloths, waiting for the food and guests.

Father Terrance W. Klein, America magazine – a reflection on the Mass readings for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary time.

I’D START with stracciatella. It’s such a fun word to pronounce, and what’s there to explain? Other than to say, ‘It’s chocolate chip.’ Of course, they’d want to know how that was different from, the similar looking, bacio, and I’d explain that it was made with the famous chocolates from Perugia. Over here was cioccolato al arancia, dark chocolate with orange flavoring. Of course pistacchio was pistachio. Where’d they think we got it from? Niocciola was hazelnut, all by itself.
