Holiday Traditions

Every year my best friends and I get together and have our annual holiday dinner together. Usually we go to Birches, one of our favorite places to dine in Baltimore but this year we've decided to do something a little different. We're going to do an "around the world" theme. Basically, each person picks a region and a dish and we all feast on foods from various regions/cultures around the world.

What are your favorite holiday foods? Are they regional/cultural in significance? I'd love to know more about the worldly gastroadventures of my blogger community and readers!

Leave your ideas/recipes/comments below!

Hi Meghan, this will be so much more fun than dining out. Pick a family or ethnic dish that's a standard for your family.

As a Greek, cheese & spinach pies, Pastitsio or Melomakarona are great Christmas offerings.

We always have cheese fondue on Christmas Eve. Not the stuff from a package...homemade fondue. Yum.

Tres Suisse. :)
