Feast of the Seven Fishes is, in my opinion, the best Italian tradition that isn’t Italian. Like eggplant parm and peas in your carbonara, it’s a delicious Italian-American adaptation based on the Catholic tradition of eating fish (a leaner meal) the night before a holiday or feast. So, yes, a pre-feast feast. It’s become a custom for many northeas...

Four Marco’s Italian Delis across Buffalo and its Northtowns serve fresh, flavorful Sangwiches. It only made sense, though, to stop by the Hertel Avenue location – in our city’s Italian heart – to try a couple.

Italian food is a favorite — and surely not just in Italy! It is on everyone’s menu, and whether it is served at home or in a restaurant it is always welcome. “People love Italian food because it tastes good and is comforting. It’s ‘feel good’ food!” says Alison Iovine, co-owner and front end manager of Beniamino’s Cucina & Pizza. “It is also healt...

Many countries have holiday fruit breads and cakes, and these typically end-of-year specialties filled with assorted combos of raisins, nuts and dried fruits, have been produced in Europe at least since the Middle Ages. Panettone, of course, is one of the best-known of the variants, and is now available throughout the world in November and December...
