Italian New Year's Eve Traditions

Join us at Bridge Street for a taste of a traditional Italian New Year's Eve dish - Cotechino. Alex is making Cotechino (koteˈkino)- a spiced sausage. Cotechino dates to the early 16th century. Pork symbolizes the richness of life in the coming year!

As with many traditional foods, each region of Italy has slight variations - cotechino can be served with lentils, mashed potatoes, braised cabbage or polenta.

At PPS, we're hooked on polenta. We're serving our cotechino with polenta and a bit of red pepper caponata.

Our favorite Italian New Year's Eve custom? Don't forget to wear your red underwear while toasting with prosecco to ring in the New Year! They say it'll bring you good luck.

Felice Anno Nuovo!
