The Feast of the Seven Fishes, Christmas Tradition, The Room at Cedar Grove, Lewes, Delaware, Paul Cullen, Delaware Beaches

Many traditions during the Holidays and a favorite is visiting Longwood Gardens. It gets you in the Christmas Spirit.

I am originally from Puerto Rico and they celebrate Christmas and Three Kings Day. Typical foods like roasting pig and blood sausages. Hey, I know what you are thinking but let me tell you they are good.

One tradition that I had heard was The Feast of the Seven Fishes. I have never attended such a feast. In Italian it is called Festa dei Sette Pesci. It is held in many Italian/American households prior to Christmas Eve.

Our local celebrity, Paul Cullen, was celebrating The Feast of the Seven Fishes at The Room at Cedar Grove located at 32882 Cedar Grove Rd., Lewes, DE. This event venue owned by Paul holds concerts, dinners, and a market. Check him on all Social Media. Or

Look at our table. So much fun. Bonnie, Paul’s wife, at the head of the table while Paul, Nina and the rest helped with our feast. Great way to meet new people, that’s a given.

And what did we all have in common? A love for food. All were foodies, passionate for interesting offerings. We were ready ?

The starter was Baccola or Cod. Deliciously salty.

All dishes were accompanied by a wine that would complement our food.

Our second dish was baked clams.

Our third dish was fish.

Our fourth dish was pasta with shrimp. This pasta was excellent, so much so I forgot to take a photo. This photo was taken by Minnie Waters Shorter.

Our fifth dish was scallops over creamy polenta. very good, as well.

Our 6 dish was the meatballs or I should say fishballs. Paul said it was his traditional meatball recipe made with fish instead.

Our last dish was a chocolate mousse with a dessert wine as Paul serenaded us with a private concert.

It was a lively bunch at dinner. No loss for conversation. Laughter, stories of travels, the foods we love.

Food serves as a way for people to come together. That’s exactly what we did at Paul’s Kitchen & Cullen-ary Company.

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year.
