The New Year is coming up and many parties, dinners or gatherings are lined up. Holidays are all about eating, drinking and being merry, so here are some ideas that can help you prepare for these feasts.
Dinner with Family
I love having themes for family dinners. It makes preparing easier and more fun. So why not have a Japanese style New Yearâ€™s feast. Donâ€™t forget to grab some sake.
Dinner with Friends
New Yearâ€™s dinners with friends are always formal and everyone loves to dress up for the occasion. It is a great time for some wine and sumptuous food. If seafood is easily available, it would be great to prepare various dishes using it.
Cocktail parties are always fun. A mix of light and heavy finger food is always best for whatever occasion. It is also a good idea to use the same ingredient but with some variation, just like what you do for canapÃ©s.
Feel free to mix and match different types of dishes and be creative during the holidays. Try to prepare the food that you can refrigerate or store ahead of time so that you wonâ€™t be stressed on the day itself.
