5 CHRISTMAS DINNERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Here are 5 Christmas dinners from around the world.
Christmas may be celebrated differently around the world. But there’s one festive tradition that is shared the world over – dinner.
Almost every country has at least one unique dish or beverage that makes the holiday just a little special. Here are 5 Christmas dinners from around the world.
Christmas Eve dinner is called Le Réveillon in France. The meal typically includes a variety of items, including oysters, foie gras, a chestnut-stuffed roast turkey, and a variety of cheeses. The main dessert is often bûche de Noël, or Yule log.
Brazil’s Ceia de Natal (Christmas dinner) is a veritable banquet served late on Christmas Eve. Turkey – often decorated with local fruits – is served alongside a plethora of accompaniments like ham, garlicky kale, salted cod, salada de maionese(potato salad with raisins and apple slices), farofa (seasoned and toasted cassava flour), rice and nuts. Rabanada is also a favourite festive pudding in Brazil
In southern Italy (as in many Italian-American households), the usual Christmas Eve meal is traditionally made up of only fish or shellfish and vegetable dishes. Octopus, anchovies, salt cod, and clams are among the common ingredients, but the most traditional ingredient is capitone (eel). Seafood pasta dishes are part of the menu, of course.
In the Philippines, the main Christmas feast is the Noche Buena, held late on Christmas Eve. This meal with Hispanic roots consists of lechon (roasted pig), queso de bola (Edam cheese), various pasta dishes – and for dessert, fruit served with condensed milk or coconut cream. There is often Filipino sweet spaghetti, served in a sugar-sweetened tomato sauce.
Germans enjoy a simple Christmas Eve dinner, followed by a much larger, multi-course dinner on Christmas Day. There is goose, duck, rabbit, and Krustenbraten (pork roast with a crispy rind), accompanied by such things as potato dumplings and sausage stuffing.
