A great big Buon Natale to all of our paisani out there because this is Part One of the Italian American Power Hour Christmas Eve Spectacular! Join the Fab Five (and some of their spouses) as we sit down for a very special pre-Christmas Eve fish feast and dig into the ins and outs of what makes the Italian American Christmas Eve fish feast so special.
We’ll talk about our family menus, the history of the FEAST OF THE SEVEN FISHES, how to avoid a re-gifted Panettone and some of our favorite traditions for the most famous Italian American holiday of the year.
