The Christmas Eve Feast Special

Christmas_Party_TableHo, ho, ho! Santa is coming to town … along with the rellies and a passel of friends! Need some last minute help with dinner menus or a recipe or two? Read on!

From Naples to New London, friends and family will celebrate Christmas Eve with seafood. You can do it up big with an Italian tradition, the Feast of Seven Fishes. My version is a tapas-like meal with seven small plates.

Seven seem a bit overwhelming? You can enjoy three fishes in a delicious seafood stew. I’ve got two versions to choose from: Mediterranean or Caribbean.Or take it down to a single fish in an absolutely delicious chowder. What could be more New England than Lobster-Corn Chowder or Nana Nye’s Award Winning Fish Chowder? If you prefer your chowder with a French accent, try my Fish Stew Provençal.

Kick off dinner with a festive salad. My colorful Radicchio, Fennel, and Arugula Salad or my sweet and salty Mixed Greens with Roasted Grapes, Olives & Feta will make a delicious start to you dinner.

And for dessert? You can keep it simply delicious with Maple-Nut Sundaes or Hot Fudge Sundaes. Or stick with tradition (at least my family’s tradition) with Aunt Anna’s Pecan Pie. That said, we started a new tradition two years ago with Chocolate-Espresso Cheesecake.

Merry Christmas and bon appétit!
