Europe Inspired Christmas Meals 2020

I was fortunate to spend 5 days at my parents house for Christmas this year. When my Mom and I planned the meals, she wanted to have themed nights celebrating different countries. My Mom planned the tablescapes for each of the meals. My parents researched traditional Christmas celebrations in each country. It inspired the table decorations. Also they prepared fun facts about the holiday celebrations. The table decorations were special and added to the atmosphere. The German wooden winter pyramid was a huge hit. We delighted in watching the scene spin around from the heat of the candles.

The first night was inspired by France.

French Onion Soup with Homemade French Bread

Palmiers

The second night was inspired by Italy.

Eggplant Rollatini

Broccoli with Garlic

Italian Cookies from Carlo’s Bakery

The third night was inspired by Germany.

Spaetzle

Red Cabbage (we reduced the sugar and increased the vinegar)

Toasted Pecan, Coconut and Chocolate Clusters

The three of us enjoyed our holiday meals this year. We made it special and it was memorable.
