Christmas Dinner 2021
Since we celebrated Christmas physically by ourselves without family, we made only dinner for 2 without all the dramatic presentations. But delicious as ever.
This year, with everyone vaccinated within my family who could be with us at home, I decided to celebrate!
For appetizers we had Jamon Iberico de Belleto fed only with acorns, Gilda (peppers, anchovies and olives) I brought back from our trip in Bilbao and San Sebastián, cheeses from our neighborhood cheese place.
I was going to make the mashed potatoes and garnish it with fresh white truffle but I had no more time to sieve it nor mash the potatoes. So I just cut them into pieces and added butter and sprinkled them with salt and shaved the white truffle on top. Next time, I may drizzle some truffle oil too.
Desserts this year were Tunisian traditional desserts crafted by @Layla of California and festive chocolates with peanut butter centers by @JohnKelly
If you need any of the recipes - please let me know.
Below were sweets I ordered from the website I provided in my link. But I quickly made up my concocted dessert with some japanese style cheesecake with whipped cream, pink strawberries and crumbled French style meringue.
