Last Minute Suggestions for Your Holiday Feast

Are you ready for your holiday feast?

Whether you are in charge of the entire meal or been asked to bring along a salad … here are a few suggestions.






Get things started. My signature shrimp or smoked salmon mousse are perfect for your feast of the seven fishes. Or set out an antipasto platter, a few dips, some almonds and olives. Whatever you do, keep it simple and enjoy the holidays.
