Lentils for Luck & Wealth in 2016

People around the world have traditions for ringing in the new year. Foods play an important role in the festivities. Many Italians believe that lentils’ coin-like shape represents luck and wealth. For this reason, lentils are served after midnight on New Year’s Eve. They are often accompanied by the spicy pork sausage cotechino and zampone, a pig trotter stuffed with sausage meat.
