Le Virtu

I just found this earlier today. The places mentioned are in Italy. This soup is traditionally only made on May 1st. Not exactly sure if it counts as a day or holiday.

Le Virtu is a traditional soup from Abruzzo and the city of Teramo. According to the ancient pagan rites (and Waverly Root), on May 1st, seven virgins are to each bring seven ingredients to the city square, at which point those ingredients are combined to create a dish with 49 different elements. The soup marries winter and spring, and allows for the cleaning out of cupboards to welcome the impending bounty of the new season.
