Italian Easter Cooking Class in Florence

 

Easter is one of the main Christian festivals in Italy and is experienced as the first important Festival after the winter. For Italians, Pasqua is the biggest food feast of spring.
Pasqua in Italy is one of the most festive ways to shake off the gray, cold and wet winter days.
While it is true that Easter is spent with friends, it still remains an equally strong tradition to spend the days of Easter as a family, with the huge Easter lunch with lamb and colomba. Easter continues even on Monday as it is tradition for everyone to get out of the house either for a day trip or a picnic in the park.  

 

The traditional Easter dish is definitely lamb, every region in Italy has their own recipe. As a sacred symbol of Easter, lamb is served and accompanied by various spring-inspired side dishes, such as potatoes, peas, artichokes according to produce availability and our cooking student’s preferences.
All the Easter lunch dishes are rich and abundant starting from the Pasqualina cake, to the main lamb dish to dessert with Colomba with pieces of the chocolate egg!
