A few ideas for holiday menus. Japan has a month to celebrate the end of the year with Bonenkai (funerals of the old year) parties. In other places, Yule, Noël, Xmas and New Year in many places. Add, yours…
I like trying different dishes and meal styles.
Take a hot cup of thé de Noël and enjoy :
Rétro Christmas, candlelight and rustic.
Everything white, and French flavors…
