Italian food proverbs: “One never ages at the dinner table.”

Above: Chef Harvey Harris, Texas-born and Italian-trained, and a lover of all things Italia!

Here at Siena Ristorante Toscana we don’t just love Italian food: We live Italian food!

That’s one of the reasons why we love Italian food and wine proverbs so much.

One of our favorites is a tavola non s’invecchia mai. In other words, one never ages at the dinner table.

Our Italian table at Siena is a place where people of all ages and from all walks of life come together around great food and wine. And when it comes to sharing a great meal, we are all young at heart. A tavola non s’invecchia mai…

Here at Siena Ristorante Toscana, Chef Harvey grows a lot of the produce we use in his own garden.

For those of you who visit us at lunchtime, you’ve probably seen him out there working
in his vegetable patch.

With the arrival of spring, we’re looking forward to another great season of homegrown fruits and vegetables — just like they do it in Italy!

Asparagus: The quintessential Italian Easter vegetable!

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?

There is no holiday more “Italian” than Easter.

Yes, Christmas is a big holiday for Italians, too. No doubt about it.

But Easter is the family gathering (and three-day weekend!) that nearly every Italian travels home for. And there’s a good reason for that: Easter marks the arrival of spring and the bounty of springtime produce that comes along with the season. Family, great food, and a favorite holiday: It’s a recipe for a great time to be together.

Chef Harvey has put together yet another show-stopping menu for this year’s Easter Sunday brunch. Click the link below to view.

If you can’t make it to Italy this year for the Italians’ favorite holiday, you can experience the aromas and flavors of an authentic Italian Easter menu right here in Austin, Texas!

Happy Easter, everyone! Buona pasqua a tutti!
