New Year’s Eve, or Notte di San Silvestro as it is known in Italian, is a cause for much celebration in Italy. It is usually an evening spent with family and friends involving a big meal and the night ends with firework displays across the country to mark the beginning of the new year. The famous cenone di San Silvestro (the aforementioned ‘big meal’) usually involves some form of lentils. These tiny pulses are said to resemble coins, a symbol of luck, and so they have had connotations of good fortune since Roman times. This time-honoured tradition is still popular today, with many Italian families preparing a delicious lentil stew for the San Silvestro celebrations and this often involves soaking the lentils overnight.
We pay homage to this tradition with our delicious lentil ragù served with beautiful malloreddus, which are little pieces of pasta, traditionally from Sardinia, that look a bit like small gnocchi. This rich lentil sauce, made with fresh, juicy tomatoes will transport you to Italia and might just bring you a whole year of good luck…
