February 27, 2012 by Michael J. Freedman

A Niagara University graduate is publishing a book to help Roman Catholics set their St. Joseph's Day table.

Mary Ann Giordano, a 1986 alumna of NU's College of Hospitality & Tourism Management, is introducing The Saint Joseph's Day Table Cookbook, which chronicles the history, recipes and traditions of the feast day commemorating the life of Jesus Christ's earthly father.

Giordano, the executive chef at the Creekview Restaurant in Williamsville, collaborated with her father, Paul Giordano, M.D., and Nica Jadok to create the cookbook.

Cookbooks may be purchased at beginning March 6, 2012.

A launch party will take place at Artisan Kitchens and Baths (200 Amherst St., Buffalo) on March 6, 2012, at 6 p.m. Cookbooks will be available at the party for $19.95 apiece or $15 pre-sale.

St. Joseph's Day traditionally takes place annually on March 19.
