Easter week always starts with pastries called Bocconotti.

Flowers brought by locals for mass on Holy Thursday.

Special bread that is shaped like a cross is given out during mass.

Easter Procession in Nocera Terinese with their beloved Madonna.

Because of the heavy weight of the Madonna and Jesus statue, it takes a group of men to carry it.

Easter donations.

School band during procession. Obviously on break (pausa).

These men carry the statue up & down hills, around turns and on the streets of Nocera Terinese all day long.

I really didn’t even expect to go to this party I ended up there because my friend Judy graciously took me right after stuffing our faces at Bar Boulud.  (Her invite via Chef Bradford Thompson.) I’m so glad that I went with her because I got to snap some  quick pics of  some cast members of  “Top Chef Just Desserts” and amazing chefs!
