The Sorelle Colombo have baked up a storm this week, but it’s the men who will takeover kitchen duties that day to serve up Italian favourites during the 7th annual Colombo Piazza Day.

So, what’s on the menu?

Crostoli, scalille, biscotti and pizzelle for the sweet tooth all traditional cookies made just this week will be packaged up to sale during the event.

For a heartier meal, the men will be cooking salsiccia (Italian sausage), polenta in salsa marinara and of course, a crowd favourite pizza with plenty of mozzarella.

All are welcome to the family-friendly event which runs from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Besides food, Italian music will provide a back drop and guests will have an opportunity to walk through the Colombo Lodge archives.

“The day is a fun-packed three hours and we welcome the community to come out and enjoy,” says Pat Zanier, president of the men’s lodge. “Piazza Day is growing every year and we need to keep it going. That’s what the lodge is about, promoting and sharing our culture with friends and the community.”

Food and beverage tickets will be on sale during the event. The Colombo Lodge Piazza is located at 584 Rossland Ave., next to the Trail Bottle Depot.
