Saw this and just had to post. If you have seven minutes to spare, it’s a great old video. Pizza, Bagels, Brooklyn!
“Bagels and Brooklyn go hand in hand. Used to be bagels, Brooklyn and the Dodgers. But we still have Brooklyn and the bagels.”
I hope you are ready to watch the greatest video on the Internet.
And suddenly winter is upon us. Our little Tuscan villa is nice and warm from the heat of our hearth stone ovens. The smell of simple fresh Italian ingredients fills the air. But alas the snow is piling up and the hungry have begun to call for food to be delivered. The art of our dining room is so much better with warm smiling faces and rambling conversations. There is tomorrow…
Wow what a great tradition. I found this surfing as usual. I will have to plan this for next December . Anyone in??
The Feast of the Seven Fishes(festa dei sette pesci), traditionally celebrated on Christmas Eve, also known as The Vigil (La Vigilia), is believed to have originated in Southern Italy and is not a known tradition in many parts of Italy. Today, it is a feast that typically consists of seven different seafood dishes. Some Italian American families have been known to celebrate with 9, 11 or 13 different seafood dishes. This celebration is a commemoration of the wait, Vigilia di Natale, for the midnight birth of the baby Jesus.
The long tradition of eating seafood on Christmas Eve dates from the Roman Catholic tradition of abstinence—in this case, refraining from the consumption of meat or milk products—on Fridays and specific holy days. As no meat or butter could be used on such days, observant Catholics would instead eat fish, typically fried in oil.
There are many hypotheses for what the number “7″ relates to, one being the number of Sacraments in the Roman Catholic Church. Another theory is that seven is a number representing perfection: the traditional Biblical number for divinity is three, and for Earth is four, and the combination of these numbers, seven, represents God on Earth, or Jesus Christ.
The “Feast of the Seven Fishes”, a celebration of Christmas Eve with meals of fish and seafood, but there may be seven, eight, or even nine specific fishes that are considered traditional. The most famous dish Southern Italians are known for is baccalà (salted cod fish). Reasons for celebrating with such a simple fish as baccalà is attributed to the greatly impoverished regions of Southern Italy. Fried smelts, calamari, and other types of seafood have been incorporated into the Christmas Eve dinner over the years.
