An open fire (with or without roasting chestnuts) conjures images of cozy holiday togetherness. And this holiday season, we're suggesting that you entertain in front of the fire with a menu full of traditional holiday favorites, plus some new inspired creations.
A layered terrine of creamy rosemary-infused goat cheese and walnut-spinach pesto makes a perfect pre-meal hors d'oeuvre for this menu of Garlic-Herb Prime Rib, Boursin Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans Vinaigrette with Pine Nuts. For dessert, how about a Pumpkin Flan that is both simple to prepare and can be made ahead?
The menu can serve a crowd, or can be pared down for an intimate gathering of two. Enjoying this holiday meal with a glass of hearty red wine in front of on open fire will definitely keep Jack Frost from nipping at your nose!
