7Fish Feast

Oysterssprouts_5Stephen brings us the Feast of the Seven Fishes:

"Christmas Eve in the ancient Catholic church was a vigilia di magro -- a sacred fast day, on which no meat could be consumed. This stricture has long since been lifted, although many devout Italians still fast on Christmas Eve. In Southern Italy and Sicily the tradition of a Christmas Eve feast organized around fish dishes developed over the centuries, and the tradition lives on in the Quadri-Felitti household, and these days in all regions of Italy."

And a multitude of wine pairing ideas for the fish feast are brought to you by moiCheck it out.
