Are you looking to spice up your menus while your family visits this week? What are some traditional dishes made for Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s around the world? Roll up your sleeves and get into the kitchen with your kids and whip up a few of these iconic dishes:
The American South: Pineapple glazed ham
England: Chestnut soup
France: Buche de Noel
The festival of Hanukkah is about the miracle of how the oil in the great Temple was only enough to last one night, and instead lasted eight. Thus, the traditional foods of the holiday involve food fried in oil.
Latkes: pan fried potato pancakes
Sufganiot: fried jelly donuts
