Featured Christmas Recipes

Spicy Sesame Tuna Tartare

Baked Alaska with Chocolate-Rum Sauce

This layered ice cream cake with its regal crown of meringue always elicits oohs and aahs.

Red Pozole with Chicken (Pozole Rojo Con Pollo)

This Mexican stew featuring chiles and hominy is perfect party food: it feeds a crowd and the toppings passed around the table add to the festive nature of the dish.

New England Roast Turkey and Gravy

Apple cider, fresh herbs, and a touch of cinnamon bring the flavor of the Northeast to this bird.

Chocolate Irish Whiskey Cake

This recipe reimagines the classic whiskey-spiked Irish coffee as a decadent mocha layer cake filled with coffee-whiskey whipped cream and topped with white and dark chocolate shavings.

Applesauce Trifles

These trifles of caramelized oat-rye-spelt clusters, vanilla-infused applesauce, and whipped cream are a riff on a classic Scandinavian dessert known as Veiled Country Lass.

Endive, Walnut & Grape Salad

This bright, fresh salad is a wonderful contrast to the other rich dishes in the Nordic Christmas Feast menu.

Tortellini en Brodo

This comforting dish of stuffed pasta in a hearty broth is a holiday tradition in northern Italy.

Toffee-Style Brittle

This boiled candy is a good one to have in your repertoire because it’s so versatile.

Four Cheese and Tomato Lasagne

This classic combination is rich and flavorful, but thanks to thin sheets of homemade pasta, it’s also light and delicate.
