Christmas Dinners… Merry Christmas!

  • 12.22.12

Christmas dinner is just around the corner. All the decorations are up, all the presents wrapped and under the tree. Cookies are almost all baked and now I can start concentrating on our dinners.

Yes, dinners, we have started the tradition years ago to enjoy a very romantic Christmas eve dinner, and a candlelight Christmas Day lunch.

This traditions are now instilled in my son and he loves Christmas Eve dinner.  Actually there is more to it than that, after dinner he can open a small present that is under the tree while we enjoy our dessert.  So you can imagine what it is like to keep him away from shaking the boxes? Impossible. Those little legs and hands are faster than me and he can be under the tree even before I can see boo!!! I keep telling him that the small presents brings the best gifts.

I have received numerous requests from my readers on what I have planned to prepare for dinner as well as suggested menus. Thank you for all your requests and I do hope you will enjoy the below menus that I will prepare for my family.

This year, thanks to my friend Eliane at  La Serviette Blanche in Cannes, France, I will prepare Chicken Liver Parfait with Apple & Calvados Gelee.  Eliane was kind to share her recipe with me and I look forward to prepare it.
