An Italian Easter With Easter looming this Sunday, and the thoughts of yesterday's Chianti reviews fresh in my mind I sat down this morning topull both threads together. Italy, being a Catholic country that celebrates life through food and wine, has quite the repertoire of  traditional Easter fare.

While the cuisine we think of as Italian varies considerably from the north to the south of the country, and is also quite skewed by the Italian-American dishes we often think of as traditional, there are some themes that unite Easter dishes. Innocence andrebirth for example, often symbolized through the use of eggs, spring lamb, and asparagus. And of course the famous dove shaped cake known as La Colomba should cap off an Italian Easter feast. Not familiar with the Italian Easter? Well, read on and prepareto be tempted. These are all fabulous spring time recipes and that you don't have to be celebrating easter to enjoy!
