The Christmas celebration is one of the most anticipated by many. The way to celebrate it is different around the world but all agree that good food should be present at the table. Each country has its own traditions but the classic recipes are one of the many options for which we can choose for this important celebration dinner.

Christmas has varying importance around the world but yes it is true: Those who celebrate it will agree that a tasty meal with family and loved ones is one of the centre points of the day! These all sound delicious and slightly varied from the usual "turkey crown"!

I am a big fan of having family traditions, adn I think food is a great way to manifest these traditions. Classic food recipes have such a warm place in my heart, and I love reading recipes to give me ideas. I don't like fruitcake very much - never have - But I'll have to try the stuffed turkey sometime.
