In true South Philadelphia fashion, crowds will once again gather to taste local stabs at the best “red gravy” our neighborhoods can offer. Featuring the product of coveted recipes from amateurs to professionals, the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association is slated to host its fifth annual South Philly Italian Red Gravy Cook-Off on Sunday, March 31, at Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Serving as the civic association’s largest event, the competition, which kicked off five years ago in appreciation of the local Italian culture, continues to grow each spring. “It’s always an amazing event,” said Samantha Gross, events co-chair of East Passyunk Crossing Civic. “It really celebrates South Philly history coupled with our amazing food team that we have on East Passyunk Avenue. We really think of it as a celebration of the neighborhood, of the history of the Italian presence of our neighborhood.”
