Festival of Diana
Food and Drink

Diana’s Roman feast day on August 13th traditionally incorporated feasting. Her celebratory meal included wine, roasted young goat, cakes served hot on plates of leaves, and apples still hanging in clusters on their boughs. Cakes in the shape of the moon, topped with lit candles—the original birthday cake—were a traditional offering.
