Hopefully, you will share this Xmas dinner with your loved ones and enjoy it as much as we did over Facetime, with good laughs and giggles.
Though, this year has been extremely challenging, let’s try and welcome the new year with a fresh and positive spirit, good health for us all, success in our endeavours and let’s remain happy – always!

Chicken Roll w/ Cranberry Compote and Brie
This is Christmas in a Chicken Roll! It’s an ultimate stunner at your dinner and not hard to make at all. The sour cranberry compote works really well with the creamy cheese and the spices bring the whole dish together. Use the leftover juices to make a sauce by adding a little bit of butter and stock to the pan.
Sweet Potato & Garlic Galette
This staple of the French countryside works perfect as a side and accompanied with roasted meats. The outside is crispy because of the cheese and the inside is soft, buttery and perfumed with the garlic.
Roasted (Purple) Brussel Sprouts
I know sprouts have a bad name in the Netherlands and that’s probably because they were cooked through until they became snotty and unappealing. I’ve never really hated them because my mom either stir-fried or tossed them through a curry. They were really flavoursome! But you can do more with these mini cabbages by roasting them in the oven. This way they will become crispy and super yum! But first we will season them before we'll pop them in the oven. And after that, we will coat them in a marinade of honey and balsamic vinegar. Trust me you would want to try out these sprouts!
