Christmas is one of the best times of the year, some (especially children) love the exchanging of gifts, some enjoy the time spent with loved ones, some love the amazing Christmas food prepared on the table. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
There are many amazing traditional & classic Christmas foods around the world, and we will look at some of them here.
(Roast Turkey, Roast Beef, Roast Lamb, and more!)
The first is none other than the Christmas roast. It is arguably the most important dish on the table, usually the star among other dishes. The tender and juicy roast can be one of many different proteins, but turkey is the most popular. Other popular choices of meat for Christmas roast are beef, lamb, and chicken. It is often served alongside roast vegetables, stuffing, roast potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce. You can’t have a proper Christmas meal without the roast!
This is not a dish, but an ingredient. This vegetable that looks like mini cabbages is an integral part of a Christmas meal, and yet at the same time also the most divisive ingredient. It is small, it is green, and it has a foul odour when overcooked. The brussel sprout also has a distinct flavour that many like, and many who don’t. Love it or hate it, brussel sprout is incredibly nutritious for us, and when cooked properly, they are quite yummy!
The monkey bread, also known as Christmas Morning Monkey Bread, is a fun, and unique dish often served for breakfast in the USA. It is usually a dessert, it is soft, sweet and sticky, sprinkled with generous amount of cinnamon. Here at Joshijosh, we have put on on twist to it and made a savoury version of the monkey bread.
To eat it, you would pull apart the bread (like a monkey would). This is a fun dish that can be prepared together as a family together with kids, and to be enjoyed together.
Christmas dinner cannot be complete without dessert, and the Christmas pudding is one of the classic desserts for Christmas. The pudding is like a fruitcake, where it is made of dried fruits, fruit peels and more, and it is sticky with a texture of a dense sponge, it has a deep and rich flavour.
Bûche de Noël (Yule Log)
Bûche de Noël, also known as Yule Log, is a unique dessert shaped like a piece of log originated from French Christmas tradition dating back to the 19th century. According to delish.com, the cake represents yule log that families would burn on Christmas Eve, which is supposed to bring good luck for the year to come. The dessert is usually chocolate flavoured cake with cream fillings, but there are also many variations of it. The Yule Log is without a doubt one of the most unique cake that will surely turn a lot of heads when served.
