A note from Tony:
In the wintertime, Christmas and its holiday feast are a treat for Italian families across the country – no doubt about it.
But Easter, which comes at the peak of spring, is the holiday when Italian families gather to celebrate their most important meal of the year.
Every year, as the Italian countryside explodes into brilliant color and the landscape awakens to the warmer weather, Italians come together to remember the greatest gifts of life and to enjoy the biggest feast of the year.
After all, isn’t that what Easter, just like Passover, is all about?
This year, I hope you’ll join me and my family in celebrating the quintessential Italian holiday.
I’ve created an Italian Easter menu especially for Ciao Bello, where we’ll be serving classic Italian holiday and springtime dishes together with some of your favorite brunch dishes as well.
And we’ll be serving my Pastiera di Mare, a dish I created for last year’s “An Evening in Naples” dinner, chosen by Houston Pressrestaurant critic Kaitlin Steinberg’s “Number 1 dish in Houston 2013-2014.”
Wherever you celebrate this year, remember that Easter and springtime are a time to remember what is most important in life.
Happy holiday to everyone!
