I took the challenge of recreating some of these family recipes, styling and plating the same dishes to brighten your visual and gustatory senses. I have recreated our family Christmas tradition dinner for you to experience and enjoy. I hope you do so as we have over the past many years."
I wrote this story to include on the left side of my menu booklet. Again, it gives it a personal touch, something to transport you to the many years we enjoyed having this dinner.
