Chef's Christmas Memories 大廚的聖誕回憶
Christmas in Italy
Andrea Accordi- Executive Chef
In Italy, the celebration starts on Christmas Eve with many courses of fish. A classic fish soup, lots of starters like scallops, octopus and calamari. Everything is prepared very simply but with top quality ingredients. This might go on until midnight when we finish with panettone and grappa.
On Christmas Day the table is full all afternoon. Tortellini with capon broth. A whole baby lamb. All the extended family comes by and everyone cooks something. There always has to be risotto. My mother makes this risotto with her special homemade sausage. My mom is the only one allowed to touch it (and I never complain!).
Christmas is the day of the year to be together as family. A big table full of food brings us all together.
