Given its cold temperatures and harsh weather, winter isn’t typically a season that is associated with comfort and leisure. However, we would disagree with this sentiment, as winter allows us to warm up indoors and eat delicious comfort food, and what says ‘comfort’ quite like that? In keeping theme with our menu of elegant Italian fare, we’ll be taking a closer look at foods of Italian origin that are commonly enjoyed during the colder months. Interested in dining with us at Strega? Make a reservation to join us at 379 Hanover Street for a fabulous meal or give us a call at 617.523.8481.
Hot, hearty, and easy to eat, canederli can be best characterized as Italy’s interpretation of dumplings. These savory, breaded dumplings are typically served with butter and/or broth, making it a perfect wintertime dish. See if you can enjoy canederli this winter!
With origins that trace to Northern Italy, polenta has been enjoyed by generations of Italians and people all over the world. A dish that centers around ground cornmeal, both the texture and taste of polenta are almost instantly recognizable. This is not to mention the great taste that happens when meats and other savory ingredients are added.
Pasta in Brodo
What’s one way to make pasta more appropriate for the colder months? Add broth to it, of course! Quit literally meaning ‘pasta in broth’, pasta in brodo is especially common in the colder regions of Italy, and we can understand why. This soupy, comforting dish is so simple, yet so satisfying.
