Asparagus: The quintessential Italian Easter vegetable!
Please call (512) 349-7667 to reserve.
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?
