Easter Menu Tra le Colline 2024

  • 17 March , 2024

Easter is a celebration during which we commemorate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. For many people, this means a long weekend off, hunting for chocolate eggs, and enjoying an elaborate family dinner. For Christians, of course, it holds a deeper significance: it represents hope, renewal, and the triumph of life over death. On March 31st and April 1st, we are organizing a traditional Easter brunch at our Agri-Resto. Together with our guests, we will indulge in tasty Easter eggs, a delightful lunch, and conviviality, all in honor of this significant Christian event.

Traditions of Easter

Throughout the centuries, numerous traditional Easter dishes have been developed. It’s notable that many of these dishes contain eggs. There are two main reasons why eggs are often used in a traditional Easter menu. The first reason is the symbolism of renewal and rebirth. Eggs symbolize new life, which perfectly aligns with the Christian meaning of Easter. Additionally, eggs are often considered nutritious food that can be eaten during the fasting period leading up to Easter. This period of abstaining precedes Easter.

Colomba di Pasqua

Colomba di Pasqua, meaning “Easter Dove,” is a traditional Italian Easter bread that resembles a dove in shape, a symbol of peace and hope. It is similar to the Christmas bread Panettone but has a different taste and texture. This well-known Italian Easter bread also contains eggs as a key ingredient. Additionally, its soft dough includes butter, sugar, and usually pieces of candied fruit, such as orange peel, and almonds. The dough is shaped into an oval form resembling a dove and then baked until golden brown. After baking, the bread is often decorated with a glaze and sliced almonds. This delicious and festive bread is a popular treat during Easter celebrations in Italy and is often enjoyed as part of the Easter breakfast or as dessert during the Easter meal.

Whether you celebrate Easter from a religious perspective, enjoy the traditional customs and delicacies, or simply look forward to a long weekend with family and friends, it is a time of hope, renewal, and togetherness for everyone. As we prepare to commemorate this significant Christian event, we warmly invite you to join us for our traditional Easter brunch at our Agri-Resto on March 31st and April 1st. Let’s come together to delight in tasty Easter eggs, a delicious lunch, and conviviality. Happy Easter!
