This year we are having Christmas dinner at home by ourselves and outsourced most of the preparations. Simple!

Starters:  smoked salmon, foie gras & lentils, salade noël (really just mixed greens with star-shaped cut carrots).


Lobster ravioli in squid ink pasta, champagne cream sauce


Roasted veal tenderloin (rosemary, shallot), gratin dauphinois, carrots in maple-syrup, saute mushroom.


Gratin dauphinois au four.


Christmas log: dark chocolate mousse with raspberry filling


Many of the items have been purchased from Globus’s deli section.


We do not have a real Christmas tree this year as we will be going away soon. Instead, we found a home fragrance spray which provides that fresh light Christmas tree smell without any of the typical heavy cinnamon note.


This was our tree in 2010.
