Celebrating Lucia, the bearer of light in the darkness of Winter

In the darkness of the early hours in the new day, just before the dawn announcement, Lucia advances with silent steps followed by mellow choruses, in a procession of candles, which lights the cold Winter sky with swaying vivid flames. Lucia brings light and hope to humanity.

For this very special and felt occasion, on December 13th, I enjoy to bake and serve soft Swedish Lussekatter (Saffron buns) for breakfast. I learned about this beautiful sweet culinary tradition years ago, during my first Christmas stay in Sweden. Indeed, travelling means sometimes to take a piece of the world you are visiting with and to keep on cultivating those cultural experiences in the time. Thus, the fragrance of a good hot coffee and a soft saffron bun become part of your own culinary habits in the Christmas season. A warm cup of coffee and a golden soft saffron bun turn to be food for the soul, as epiphany of serene moments lived next to the people, who are members of your family and this day is dedicated to them.

Glad Lucia! 🎄✨❤

  1. How beautifully and warmly you write about Lucia and the Lusse cats. You have baked them with so much warmth and emotion, they look so good. Wishing you a beautiful and bright Christmas in the south of Italy.
