The Feast of the Seven Fishes
Serving a multi-course seafood dinner on Christmas Eve (La Vigilia) is a wonderful holiday mealtime tradition that originated in Southern Italy. Known as the Feast of the Seven Fishes, a traditional Italian Christmas Eve is a celebration of the vigil awaiting the midnight birth of the baby Jesus. The dishes served vary from family to family. These recipes are the favorites we’ve adopted into our non-Italian family. Buon Natale!
