How Italians Celebrate Easter
Italian Easter dishes are the result of local ingredients meeting religious traditions. From north to south, every family in Italy has a menu to prepare made up of regional and local recipes, some of which are centuries old. After the 40 days of Lent, Easter celebrations begin with a rich and savory breakfast with salami, hard-boiled eggs, pies, and breads. Easter lunch includes lamb and desserts that are prepared only for this occasion. Easter Monday, known as Pasquetta, is all about spending time outdoors and enjoying the delicious leftovers with family and friends.
