New Years Eve Cotechino

Everyone eats cotechino on New Years Eve in Italy. It is akin to turkey at Thanksgiving, a holiday staple, so of course we served it at Va Beh' this year, to rave reviews.

Lentil and pork are two symbols of good luck and both are combined in this dish: The pork is served as large sausage, in the shape of medallions, and resemble large coins laid on a glistening bed of savory, braised lentils.

We ate enough for everyone that night! So here's to your good fortune in 2013!
