An Italian New Year’s Eve

An Italian New Year's Eve

Celebrate New Year’s Eve the Italian way by serving foods that symbolize prosperity and good fortune for the coming year. Lentils are the centerpiece of the meal; the round legumes resemble coins and hence, good fortune. Pork is the traditional accompaniment, as it represents richness of life in the year ahead. Our pork tenderloin is prepared in the Tuscan style, seasoned with fresh rosemary and sage, and garnished with crisp pancetta and capers. Pour glasses of Italian sparkling wine, such as spumante or prosecco, and welcome a prosperous New Year.
