We’ve written before about how Italians love Easter. Most would say that it’s their favorite holiday.

Part of the reason why it’s such a popular holiday in Italy is because — as you already know — Italians love food and the Easter feast is a celebration of springtime and springtime vegetables.

No Italian Easter meal is complete without asparagus, the quintessential spring vegetable and a classic ingredient in Easter menus.

This year, Chef Harvey is doing a Fettunta di Asparagi: Grilled Asparagus, Sunny Side Up Duck Egg, Black Pepper Bacon, Grilled Fettuna.

A “fettunta” is a classic Tuscan dish that many of you may know as “bruschetta.”

In Tuscany they call it fettunta which literally means, fetta unta, or oil-dressed slice [of bread].

In Tuscany, they take yesterday’s stale bread and grill it over an open fire. Then they rub it with garlic and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil.

Chef Harvey will be serving his fettunta this year topped with gorgeous spring asparagus.

Sounds delicious right?
