Strada Italiano to hold Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve

Dec 09, 2015 1357

The Feast of the Seven Fishes will be served this Christmas Eve at Strada Italiano in downtown Asheville to celebrate the Italian-American tradition and the use of seafood in the family meal as a way of abstinence from meat, a long Roman Catholic tradition during various days of the week as well as during Lent. This year's feast menu is available on the website, and reservations will be taken by phone.

There have been several interpretations of the feast's commemoration throughout history, however esteemed food writer Domenica Marchetti tells the story below very well. Whatever the true affiliation, it is a tradition that remains special in any Italian-American family, and will be provided locally by Anthony Cerrato, owner and chef of Strada Italiano Restaurant.
