What is in season at Christmas in Italy?

Peg | Oct 21, 2007 12:14 PM

I am spending Christmas in Venice - this is my 5th (or is it 6th?) visit, and I know where we will probably eat - but what foods should I be looking out for late December?
Last time I was there this time of year I'm pretty sure some of the seafood was frozen - so what should be fresh and good? (seafood and veggies in particular).

(fyi - last time I was there at Christmas the best meal I ate was at Corta Sconta, where we ate the seafood appetisers (all 4 waves of them), and I followed with pasta with white truffles grated over the top at the table, then treviso ice-cream. That's raddichio ice-cream - how could I not order it? Wierd but yummy.... )
