The Italian-Style Marinated Vegetables You'll Want to Eat on Everything

We’re partnering with Lagostina to celebrate the Italian Sunday dinner with stories, recipes, and videos about this special family tradition. Here, Nick Perkins—chef and owner of Hart’s and Cervo’s in New York City—shares a simple, make-ahead recipe inspired by his grandmother’s cooking.

Food was a big part of my life growing up in Chicago. We always sat down for meals; long dinners were the norm in our family. My mom’s side of the family is Italian, so she cooked a lot of the food that she grew up eating. My dad also did a lot of the cooking and spent a lot of time with my grandmother, really learning and documenting her recipes.
