All throughout Italy the cities are stirring with the infectious energy that comes with the Christmas season. Italy’s Christmas traditions date back centuries, and everyone can feel the energy as distinctly as children see and feel the spirit of Babbo Natale. In Italy the season officially starts on December 8th, the Feast of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, which is an official “bank day”. Each little town’s decorations include something varied and particular to that town and it is nothing short of enchanting. And in homes, kitchen ovens are spilling out goodies daily. Our kitchen is no different and here are a few of our favorites that we’ve been working on.
