Most Christmassy Recipes From Around The World So Far

Our tree

That time of year has come around again, schools out, ears are submerged in carols, eyes are looking at scenes of snow (I really don’t understand why they sell them here) and mouths are anticipating the taste of christmas hams and desserts. Well this year I thought that some of you kitchen travellers might want some global inspired meals in your christmas menu this year. These are in an order of entrée, main, drinks, desserts. So here they are the recipes that I think have been the most christmas worthy so far:

1. Belarusian Potato Draniki

These delicious but oily potato cakes will be a hit at any party you serve

3. Bhutanese Dumplings (momo) with Ema Datshi

These may not look pretty but they sure do pack a punch of flavour

4. Two types of Austrian Dumplings with Beef Goulash
