Everyone should prepare a special dinner for the family at least once in his or her lifetime. In our home, the most special family dinners include the stuffed turkey at Thanksgiving or Christmas.
In France, the Christmas Eve Réveillon is a special evening to get dressed up and enjoy several courses of fine dining. We’ve replaced the traditional French goose with a traditional stuffed turkey, much to the initial chagrin of my French family. That is, until they tasted the tender, juicy stuffed turkey with all the traditional side dishes. Round that off with French champagne, foie gras, a cheese platter and chocolate mousse for dessert and well, you have the ultimate festive dinner.
Here are my favorite recipes from kitchens on both sides of the pond, combined to celebrate everyone’s taste buds and traditions!
