For this month’s edition of cooked in translation we decided to use as a theme new years. The theme is auspicious food for a prosperous new year and I choose lentils. According to traditions, lentils bring money if eaten on the first day of the new year. It probably is because their shape resembles coins.
Traditionally they are served with cotechino. A very fatty pork sausage. A bit heavy, but really delicious!!
Took me a while but finally pics are up!!!!
World on a Plate is a blogging cultural exchange. On the last Sunday of the month, bloggers from all over the world get together to interpret a food through the lens of their home country cooking. Each blogger will produce a wonderful dish featuring the food chosen that is typical of her/his home country and will tell us a bit about the dish.
Check out what to eat for a prosperous new year!
