Where Naples Coast & Islands - - DINING -

As with all Ital­ian fes­tiv­i­ties, in keep­ing with age-old tra­di­tions, food at Christ­mas plays a piv­otal role. The tra­di­tional Christ­mas Eve meal and Christ­mas lunch are two un­miss­able rit­u­als. The for­mer con­sists mainly of fish while the sec­ond fea­tures meat and veg­eta­bles. Desserts are ob­vi­ously also key to the suc­cess of th­ese meals. Where takes you in dis­cov­ery of the flavours and aro­mas of Christ­mas in the city. This is the dish that opens Christ­mas lunch in Neapoli­tan house­holds. An elab­o­rate dish that re­quires hours of prepa­ra­tion, it’s called ‘Mar­ried Soup’ be­cause of the ‘mar­riage’ of meat and veg­eta­bles. It was im­ported to Naples from Spain in 1300.
