March 15th, The Ides of March
For those of you who are not aware of the significance of the Ides of March, according to the Roman calendar, it is the date signifying the beginning of spring and there was a huge celebration in the city of Rome. The Soothsayers warned Julius Caesar to “beware of the Ides of March,” which of course he didn’t listen to and was stabbed to death by his best friend Marcus Brutus. Thus the phrase “et tu brutus”. So I thought we could celebrate with this Roman holiday with Caesar Salad , a tribute to Caesar. And a popular Roman pasta dish called Buccatini al’Amatriciana.
