May the merriment of end of the year festivities begin!
I wish you all happy holidays, filled with presents, family fun, and good food!
I’ll be posting the results of my Christmas meals later on this week (I hope), but for the moment, all I have to show is the menu (as planned so far – no kitchen catastrophies have required last minute changes so far, I’m keeping my fingers crossed )
It has been a couple years since I’ve auto-proclamed myself Head of the Family Kitchen during the holiday season. I manage the whole thing with the iron grip of a veteran dictator (according to my family – how sweet )
For this year’s menus, I found inspiration in many and wonderful recipes found a bit everywhere (in magazines, on blogs, at the table of friends … who will, I hope, forgive me for stealing the recipe from memory before sending them the recipe of my apple cake in exchange :p)
Christmas Eve dinner :
Entrée : scallops with crunchy nut topping and sweet potato cream soup (recipe here)
Main course : Salmon with curry sauce, and polenta with dried fruits
Dessert : Chocolate pear with nut crumble (recipe here)
Christmas lunch :
Entrée : Foie gras apple tatin (recipe here)
Main course : Turkey (with my mom’s special home made stuffing) and butternut cheesecake (one of my soon to be classics if I keep at this rate!)
Dessert : Home made Bûche de Noël
I’ll keep you all posted!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
