Chef's Travel Notes

Made popular in this country by Southern Italian immigrants in New York in the 1900s, the Feast of the Seven Fishes is enjoyed on Christmas Eve in commemoration of the birth of Jesus the next day.  The Roman Catholic tradition of abstaining from eating meat on the eve of certain holy days led to the origination of this multi-course feast.

Despite its Italian American popularity, this tradition is virtually unknown in Northern Italy.  Though it seems like almost each of the 20 regions has its own culinary traditions, this celebration has taken hold here and has become a popular annual i Ricchi event.

We are excited that you have made this part of your Christmas tradition!
