Before starting your countdown to Christmas, have you ever asked yourself when this all started?
The tradition of exchanging gifts during Christmas has remote origins that are based in ancient Rome. Banquets were held in honor of the Saturn God where people used to exchange good wishes and symbolic gifts such as were fruit, wine, cheese and terracotta statuettes. A little like today, kids used to receive gifts from Goddess Strenia, an ancient Pagan figure, a minor deity of the Roman Pantheon, which provided sweets of marzipan, toys and puppets of wood or precious metals. It all sounds a lot like Santa Claus, right?
The First and Michelin Star Chef, Alessandro Narducci, are revisiting this ancient Pagan celebration and will inspire your festivities with an exclusive menu.
