Salami and Eggs

Fellata di Pasqua salame

A humble but decadent dish served for Easter in Italy as a starter is salame e uova sode (salami and boiled eggs), commonly called fellata di pasqua. Eggs symbolize rebirth and the salami represents the bounty of the farmers who put the salami on the table.


Italian artichokes online

Stuffed, braised or fried, enjoyed as an antipasto or as a part of a dish, artichokes are a springtime favorite and a common feature of the Italian Easter meal.
