It took many years to make the holiday official.
A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913. President Lyndon Johnson, in 1966, issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972. (from Wikipedia)
This is the time of the year for berries: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries.... and we just came back from a trip to Italy, Greece and Turkey and we had a wonderful "mirtille tart" =wild blueberry tart,.... in Rome....in June....
I decided to come up with the recipe and many fruits to celebrate my husband, RADU, my brother, UINI, and my son in law, Jeremy. We had such a good time in Italy, good food, good wine, singing in gondola, opera singing, and GELATTA!! How divine!
This is one the best recipe I can find with Italian mascarpone chese (country/cream cottage chese) and I try it for the "fathers day"
