Italian Xmas Traditions: FOOD


The heart of the family, the heart of the household, the heart of the town is FOOD.  And at Christmas special foods are created that you may never see at any other time of year

Biscotti or cookies for Christmas might be a universal treat but the Italians know how to do this right!   Wile visiting Luca a pastry artist in Lecce I spent some moments gazing at the huge array of biscotti.  Some looked familiar even if the names have changed.   But perhaps you remember these treats and can share the names your nonna used for each one.

This is the honey covered treat served every Christmas.   Did you have it at your house?
