In Southern Italy, celebrating Christmas Eve with a feast of seven fish dishes is a much-loved age-old tradition. It's almost always a family affair, with generations of cooks in the kitchen and favorite foods that return year after year. But you don' thave to be Italian to throw your own holiday seafood feast, and you don't have to stick with traditional recipes, either. Food Network Magazine went to seven of their favorite Italian chefs and asked them for some great new ideas for this year's meal.
Call it the ultimate holiday potluck: Seven chefs bring seven great dishes to the table for an old Italian Christmas Eve tradition.
