The “Ceppo”, or Yule Log, is an ancient Christmas Eve tradition in Tuscany. In times past, country families would choose the biggest and best log to burn on Christmas Eve as the family gathered round. The Yule Log was a symbol of strength and unity, and its shoots emblematic of the family.
This magical tradition is revived at Osteria del Borro, where a great log burns throughout Christmas Eve in the big, central fireplace that dominates and warms the entire room. We consider our guests part of the family to celebrate the holidays with, and Andrea Campani, executive chef of Osteria del Borro, has devised a special menu for the occasion.
