Bread balls and vegetables soup: a delightful revisitation of an old family recipe for the Christmas table

We are at the third weekend of Advent and, for many, this means to make dishes from the old, local Christmas gastronomy live again; it is about those ancient tastes, which belong both to childhood memories and to family traditions as well.
