  3. The best food for Christmas are the traditional Polish dumplings - pierogi! With mushrooms and cabbage or potatoes and cheese. We make them also with spinach and goat cheese for example or blueberries, too. Fruit version in the summer tho. :) I also love Polish vegetable salad and some fish like carp in jelly or smoked trout. :) Happy Holidays, Niki! Best wishes from Poland! Kasia

  8. As the food addict I am it’s not easy to only pick one food/dish, but any kind of soup, preferably pumpkin or cauliflower, with some nice bread (swedish vörtbröd in christmas time is 10/10) makes me go Halleluja!

  10. So difficult to choose! My Christmases are all about food :) Cheesy scalloped potatoes are a great favourite and I can't have a Christmas celebration without shortbread, mincemeat tarts and plum pudding!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love everything cinnamon-flavored during this season ✨

    ReplyDelete
  18. I know it's terribly unhealthy and probably not the best quality but Suchard turrón has to be my favourite Xmas food. Since there are some crazy people out there who don't actually think chocolate is food, I'd also say stir-fried Brussels sprouts with some Parmesan. And perhaps some chocolate on top, mmmmmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ginger thins and mulled wine is a must! Ham and meatballs are also tradition. ;)

    ReplyDelete

  23. In the wintertime my very favourite thing to eat must be "danske klejner" as my grandmother makes them or simply a good pie shared with great company. I especially enjoy Donal Skehans take on the chicken pot pie - it's simply gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Panettone French toast! For a festive breakfast soak thickly cut slices of sweet, fruity panettone in a cinnamon and vanilla infused egg mixture, then gently fry in butter until golden and fluffy. Wash down with a glass of Bucks Fizz! Mandy

  25. Turkey with Herb sauce, carrot pie and garlic herring. Merry Christmas! Maija

  26. I love long breakfasts with my mum's "te-briks" (I do not know the English word, but it is wheatdough in layers with butter between... not the healthiest, but so good), eggs, smoked salmon, cloudberry jam and good cheese. And a good cup of coffee afterwards. I prefer breakfast rather than the heavy Norwegian Christmas traditional dinners. But the Norwegian "lutefisk" rolled in "lefse" with butter, moustard and pepper is my favourite - kind of like an oldfashioned taco wrap - a tradition from the Hedemark area.

    I would love to win! All my table cloths are spoiled by spots of redwine:-)

  27. Baked ham with mashed potatoes and gravy

    ReplyDelete
  28. My favorite dish for Christmas is a delicious fish soup with "mayonnaise" that we usually prepare at home. Thank you for this fantastic give away:-)

  29. A Christmas sweet delicacy for me is the traditional Spanish turron. And, as a lifelong self-confessed chocoholic, the chocolate variety is my favourite one by far!

    ReplyDelete
  31. My absolute favorite is a wintery risotto with grilled butternut, red onion and Forest mushrooms. Creamy goodness!

    My favorite Christmastime foods fall into two categories Cuban (from my family) and American (from my husband's family/in-laws). So Cuban pernil (roast pork), fresh bread, and sausage balls.

    Thanks for the amazing contest!

  48. Lefse! With strong Norwegian roots, my mom always made it this time of year as a way of passing down our heritage.

  49. In sunny perth austalia of course it is skull island prawns tossed in lime juice on the barbeque.

  50. For the moment my favourite food are mandarin oranges - they're always in abundance at this time of year, been like that since my childhood and basically you know that it's December when you start to eat a lot of them. Besides, they're the one holiday food that's relatively low in calories and healthy :)
    For the holiday itself I can't imagine it withut at least some kind of pickled herring. Last year my favourite was pickled herring with apples in curry mayo sauce - maybe not totally traditional flavour, but apples are local, and the curry sauce has this beautiful sunshine colour.

  51. This is the best homemade tofu recipe ever. I eat it with peanutbutter sauce and ovenbaked vegetables, yummy! http://www.craftycooknook.com/2014/12/31/game-changing-ginger-sesame-baked-tofu/

  52. Es precioso ese mantel y muy apropiado para estos días de reuniones familiares ;-). En nuestra casa son típicos el cardo, el cochinillo asado y las sopas de almendra como postre ;-)

  53. In recent years I've grown ever so fond of Stollen. Not only is it delightfully delicious without being too sickly sweet, the joy of making it and smelling the dough proving all afternoon long makes it feel festive at home. It's my new Christmas tradition to make it in the weeks leading up to the big day, and then get started on the old-fashioned Christmas cake.

    ReplyDelete
  54. In Barcelona we love to eat canelloni for christmas, provided my Mum is cooking them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. We are always having a big Raclette table on Christmas Evening. And I am looking forward to it from the first cold winter day of the year! It is a very festive and convivial kind of having dinner together...nothing gets cold, the kids are happy to prepare their pans for themselves and it can last for hours...

    ReplyDelete
  56. I would love to win this for my sister. My favorite winterfood is caramelised brussel sprouts and pumpkin soup with a splash of pumpkin seed oil.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Right now, until the holidays will actually start, it is a very spicy lentil soup.With Cumin,chili and coconutmilk

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ooh! Beautiful giveaway, I am still trying to get the candle wax off our favourite table cloth! My favourite thing to eat at this time of year is festive spiced bubble and squeak from all the left overs - with apple sauce, and a glass of spiced rum cider! Have a magical December :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wouldn't be Christmas without Panettone and Pandoro on out tables here in Italy. If you happen to be in Italy during Xmas holidays, you abs must try one of these (or both ;) - Daniela

  61. In Portugal, at Christmas, Codfish is the kings of the table. The tradition says “Boiled Cod”, but since tradition is not the same any longer, I love doing it in the oven with spinach, sweet potatoes, garlic and LOTS of olive oil. Remember, our Codfish is dry not fresh. Hope you like it. rosariolena@gmail.com

  62. What a gorgeous giveaway! We celebrate a very traditional Irish Christmas with roast turkey with stuffing, roast potatoes (spuds!), brussel sprouts, carrots & parsnips and a gorgeous veggie gravy made by my sister. Saliving at the thought of it already! x Siobhán

    I look forward to winter so I can make stewed red cabbage with apple, cloves, red wine, brown sugar and sultanas. It tastes even better the next day and is divine with crisp roast potatoes (but really, what isn't?)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I like to toast a slice of panatonne and servewith with crème fraiche or quark and raspberries, yum!

    ReplyDelete
  65. As a good portuguese I love the codfish with corn bread made by my Mom

    ReplyDelete
  66. Christmas pudding with vanilla ice cream - YUM!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love "passatelli in brodo" a traditional recipe from Romagna region in Italy where my grandmother was born.I used to prepare them with her when I was a child. Such good memories!The recipe has passed on to my parents and I always enjoy eating them (and not only at Xmas time!! :) )

    ReplyDelete
  68. Gosh, it has to be Yorkshire puddings (homemade, natch) and coconut macaroons. Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  69. This time of year it is glögg (mulled wine) and lussekater( buns with saffron). Really .That is what I think about at breakfast, and from the moment that I leave the office.
    It is rather unhealthy actually, lots of sugar. But I disregard that and enjoy the emotional warmth and well-being it brings.

    ReplyDelete
  70. What a great set! Would love to enter :) my favourite food this time of year is a good hearty stew with meat and sweet brown beer. I love preparing it on a grey afternoon - it has to simmer for hours so you can enjoy the food smells for ages :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I've always wanted one of those pretty linen tablecloths...

    What comes to my mind is not exactly food but drink: Glühwein (mulled wine)! It smells like winter, cozyness, love and Christmas. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Mussels and with home made french fries.

  73. I have to say the christmas pudding my mother always makes riz a la mande with with warm raspberry and pomegranate sauce. Happy holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  74. These times, my favorite food is baked pumpkin right out of the oven. Nothing better than this! Nothing! (Big love. Very big. Especially with organic mustard - heaven!)

    Greetings to you!

  75. Great to see that so many people enjoy interesting soups and stews. It seems that for me too these are the signature dishes during the winter. Especially red lentil soup with carrots, cumin, coconut milk and some ginger for spiciness. Keeping it simple.

    ReplyDelete
  76. The Christmas ham! Its a family tradition. Nothing fancy. And, I smother it with maple syrup! No brown sugar, or honey!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love soups, and white bean+sweet paprika with braided yeast bread(traditional on Christmas eve in my small village)is my favorite :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Potato Latkes and doughnuts to celebrate Hannukkah and christmas pudding with white sauce to celebrate Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Riskrem - rice pudding, made with just a very little bit of sugar and an unseemly amount of whipped cream folded through it, once it has gone cold. It becomes all fluffy and looks like a bowl of snow. We eat it with a cold fruit sauce, like a raspberry coulis. Even my English grandfather, who has some unfortunate memories of school dinner rice puddings, can't get enough of the stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  80. In Austria we love some warm, freshly baked organic dark bread with melted cheese on top and some black pepper. It's sooo delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Ohh, it´s beautiful! My mom swears by linen for bedsheets and tablecloths, so it reminds me so much of her... Love it! My favorite food...hm, for winter in general a great stew but for Christmas it´s pork roast - yum! For sweets, marzapan all the way ;)

    ReplyDelete
  82. If I’m totally honest I love to sneak up late at night during Christmas and eat crisp bread with butter and cold leftover meatballs! It’s divine and goes well with a decent cup of tea.

    ReplyDelete
  83. When it's cold outside I tend to become a proper soup eater - besides all kinds of japanese soups I really love a red pepper one at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  84. My favourite Christmas food is melomakarona! These traditional Greek Christmas cookies are made of flour, olive oil, honey and walnuts and they are simply divine! Happy holidays! :)
