My Family Feast - STUFFED EGGPLANT)

My Family Feast - STUFFED EGGPLANT

Sean Connolly is invited to a very special weekend four generations of the Pacialeo family who get together each year in late Summer for a weekend of tomato bottling.  Boxes of juicy Roma tomatoes are delivered to the house and the weekend begins.  Everyone has a job to do, from 4 year old Amadeo, to the proud 87 year old patriach, Uncle Antonio. At the end of the day, the bottles of fresh tomato sauce are left overnight to cook and the next day the family gathers once more to collect their sauce supply for the following year and to celebrate with a delicious Calabrian feast.

My Family Feast - GOZLEME TIROPITES (Tyropites)

Sean Connolly is invited to celebrate the feast day of St. George, with George Gavalas and his extended family.

Name Days, not birthdays, are celebrated in Greece. Great significance is attached to the name given a child, and the process of choosing a name follows quite rigid conventions. Children are never named after parents, but the eldest son in a family is often called after his paternal grandfather and the oldest daughter after her paternal grandmother. Names are usually of religious origin. Each saint has a special feast day and a person's name day is the feast day of the saint after which they were named. Open house is held and a feast laid on for friends and neighbours. Small gifts are given, but there is less emphasis on the giving of presents than the celebrations.
