There are many long-standing traditions centered around Christmas, but perhaps none of them are more staunchly upheld and carefully protected than those surrounding the food served at Christmas dinner. While some are decidedly on team turkey, others insist there’s nothing finer than a well-cooked roast beef, and yet more still prefer the sweet and savory combination of baked ham. And that’s just the Entrees! Side dishes and desserts offer course after course of fodder for preferences, family traditions, and a small piece of your heritage. Each of these is carefully shaped by where you grew up, your family’s religious beliefs, and the minutiae of your household’s preferences and predilections.
For instance, in Italy, their Christmas looks very different from what you might experience if you grew up in rural Vermont. Instead of turkey, a feast of seven fishes may grace your Christmas table. Japanese tradition dictates fried chicken and birthday cake, and Australians will often have an outdoor barbecue because, after all, it’s summer during Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere.
No matter what traditions your family keeps or which exciting new ones you’d like to incorporate into your holiday celebrations, you’ll find a vast array of culinary Christmas inspiration right here on the blog. From classic recipes you already know and love to creative and delicious new options, you’ll find no end of ideas from which to choose.
