Christmas Food Traditions in Italy

Posted on: December 16, 2009

Following our string of Italian-themed tweets this morning, I thought this would be a good day to write about Christmas food traditions in Italy, one of our culinary tour destinations.  On Thanksgiving, my family and friends enjoyed a Marsala-infused gravy with our turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes.  Our friends are still talking about it!  That was our “Italian-inspired” twist for that meal.

My fellow tweep and travel writer Barry Frangipane has great ideas on Christmas in Italy and Italian food and wine.  One of his tweets from this morning reads:

How do they celebrate Christmas in Venice? I found out: http://bit.ly/NOELvc

Also, I really like this video clip from Food Network’s “The Best Of” celebrating Christmas Eve at Aldo’s in Baltimore’s Little Italy.

Another fellow tweep and foodie, @foodiephotos, who runs the Web site Refrigerator Soup has some great photos and recipes on her site.  Check out this beautiful panettone, a traditional Italian holiday cake.  Refrigerator Soup posts photos of food submitted by food bloggers.  A great “foodie” and culinary resource!

Here’s to a joyous (and tasty!) holiday season.  Contact Celebrations International Travel to start planning your custom culinary tour today!

Thank you so much for the kind mention of Refrigerator Soup! It’s much appreciated – and we love your site, too!

You’re very welcome. Thanks for your post. We find it very encouraging that professionals in the foodie arena like yourself are getting to know us and our agency. We decided upon our specialization in culinary travel because of our love of food and travel. So, we thought, what better than to combine the two?

I love your site and will continue to mention and promote it whenever possible. We wish you a joyous (and tasty) holiday season!
