Le Tradizioni Natalizie a Tavola da Nord a Sud

    I'm making a Christmas menu for a luxury hotel in Italy, they've sent me a menu to translate...

    'Le TradizioniNatalizie a Tavola da Nord a Sud' is basically a traditional Italian Christmas lunch, but they've included 'da Nord a Sud'...I was wondering if anyone knows exactly what that means, as 'A traditional Italian Christmas lunch from the North to the South' sounds a bit wrong in English. Or is it one of those things that aren't easily translated? Any ideas would be great.

    Many thanks,

    I think it means ''covering traditional foods from Northern to Southern Italy'': as a matter of fact, different Italian regions have quite a lot of different sorts of cuisine, almost as if they were different Countries.

    Ciao a tutti e due :)

    I agree with Bearded man. It means (more or less): "Traditional Christmas menus in a journey from the North to the South of Italy"
