Champagne/Sparkling wine and shallots make fondue really good.

Had exactly this some years ago, and can confirm that the combination is excellent. In this case now, I leave the choices fully to her. She has gone through a thorough gastronomy education and has worked as a cook in various places. And so is an expert. I trust that she will have a good wine or Prosecco ready !

Pinnekjott which is boiled then (optionally) roasted salt lamb.

and svineribbe, which is roasted port belly.

  

In Norway for christmas this year. And we'll be having pinnekjott on Christmas Eve, and svineribbe on one of the other days of christmas.

Although, not on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, we'll be having lutefisk! Not everyone's favourite but I think it's great!

My family's predominantly German, so we'll be having roast goose, accompanied by the usual stuff like potato dumplings and red cabbage (not for me, personally). I'll probably go to my dad's on Christmas Day, and there we'll probably have turkey and such.

My family tradition, going back years, is to have Peking Duck as a Christmas dinner.

http://i41.tinypic.com/nd9zdi.jpg

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peking_Duck for information. It's a delicacy, a rich and desirable meal that we only need to have once a year...

Usually paired with Hong Kong style noodles, Eggplant in Spicy Garlic Sauce, and a Won Ton Soup as the opener...

Roast pork (aka Flæskesteg), boiled potatoes, caramelized potatoes, red cabbage sliced & diced and boiled with a variety of spices, and plenty of brown gravy.

For dessert, the one that makes or break if you're truly into the spirit of things: Risalamande. Some people hate it, I absolutely love it. For those who haven't heard of it, think cold rice porridge mixed with whipped cream, vanilla, chopped almonds, and if you're not quite grossed out yet, warm cherry sauce on top

Not grossed out at all. Sounds similar to the rice pudding served as dessert at Indian restaurants, sans the cherry sauce, which I presume is a local adaptation!

It is. Sort of. Some people (my sister included) just think it's too nauseatingly sweet.

Her loss though, given that Risalamande is also used for a competition of sorts, where one (or more depending on the number of people) whole almonds are added, and whoever gets it wins a small prize. In our family, the prize has been everything from a couple of scratch and win tickets, a bottle of wine or some small puzzle toy - to a stipulation to hold a small speech about the local wine country in Italy, where the whole family was going for summer holiday next summer.

Naturally, said competition is usually rigged beyond imagination. At least one of my uncles was notorious for bringing his own almond and prizes

I'm sure you'll do your worst. 

Actually, changing the ratio of the cheeses only changes the taste. For a hearty fondue, take Appenzeller, Tilsiter and Emmentaler, for a milder taste, choose Gruyère, Vacherin and other semi-hard cheesy stuff from western Switzerland.

More important is: Stir if the wine/cheese does not mix well. If it's too fluid, add some corn starch together with a little wine, if it's viscous, just add wine. Stir. Stir. Stir. Let it boil once. And  .

Finally finished my Christmas shopping,

Got some prawns to put on the barbie. Got 2 lots today, was in the supremarket earlier tonight & they were selling what was left of their seafood at half price (most stores here are closed by law on Christmas day).

Got the meat for the barbecue yesterday afternoon at Queen Victoria Market in the City after I finished at the office. Got a heap of different sausages, burgers, a tray of porterhouse steaks (only 15 bucks!), kebabs & a ham (was even able to sample some, the butcher makes their own), all for much less than what you'd pay at a supermarket & better quality as well. Also got the required booze as well  . At least everyone's coming to my place this year, so I don't have to worry about getting home!

Love the placement of the rose!

Our dinner is not turning out quite the way we expected. We were supposed to go to our best friends' place for dinner, but their power went out - we're having a bit of a windstorm - and then, as they were bringing the turkey over here to put in our oven, our power went out too. So their turkey is cooking in our barbeque! Now, our power is back on, and so at some point soon we'll go bring the turkey in and put it in our oven. If our friends' power does not go back on, I suspect dinner might relocate over here, and it'll likely be late in any case due to interrupted cooking. Oh well, can't do anything except roll with the punches!

Since my parents are both gone now, we have Christmas dinner at my sister's home, and this year, instead of the traditional turkey, we had steaks and baked potatoes. Big, honkin', thick steaks, I cooked them (rather well, if I say so myself, although I intensely dislike gas grills). Good stuff.

Merry Christmas, all, and best wishes for a blessed and prosperous new year.

Christmas Eve I had, Pinnekjoet, one of the main Norwegian Christmas dishes, which others have explained.
Christmas Day I had Ribbe, which also has been explained.
Boxing Day (today), I had halibut.

But, the dinners aren't the only thing, breakfast every day has been a special meal in itself, with a huge variety of meats and fish that aren't common in other times of the year.

It's safe to say I haven't been hungry in over two weeks (the week before the Christmas festivities began I was in Scotland.....)

The food is not over yet, tomorrow morning I have another Christmas breakfast, but dinners probably won't be as formal and extravagant.

Keep in mind, in Norway we have Christmas Eve as the biggest day, then the first day of Christmas (Christmas day), second day of Christmas (Boxing Day), and all the way to the 4th day of Christmas! Most people don't do much for the 3rd or 4th, but we still have Christmas Breakfasts then (for those lucky enough to not be working!)

Then of course, there is the dinner on New Years Eve, and also New Years Day (Breakfast/brunch), sadly (well, not sadly as I'm an aviation enthusiast), I will be on a flight between LHR and HKG over New Years!

Not the best fish to eat I have to admit. Hundreds of tiny, tiny little bones ensure you spend more time pulling the thing apart and "fishing" out the bones, than you do eating it.

When I was a kid my mother used to make Halibut. It was loaded with tiny little bones. You had to work so hard at bone removal from the food that it almost wasn't worth eating.

To tell you the truth, I don't care that much for Turkey. I think we had it too often as a kid. In our family Prime Rib is the new standard Christmas fare. But we have to start the day off with Christmas pudding and tea with Port to get in the mood.

My dad made the worst christmas dinner ever. We usually go out to a restaurant but not this year -- he wanted to try something 'different'. I'm still VERY pissed at him for it:

SALAD:
Generic salad my grandmother made (I found a hair in it.)

SIDES:
Overcooked vegetables in black pasty sauce
Apples in a chunky cold thick topping.
Mashed Potatoes with a bland aftertaste

MAIN:
Turkey -- half burnt, extremely dry.

DESSERT:
Chocolate Mousse. For some reason he was really proud of himself for baking this dessert. It was pathetic.


Then me and my sister had to wash the dishes for 2 hours because he forgot he didn't have a dishwasher. Worst christmas day ever.

RE: What Will Be Your Christmas Dinner?

Wed Dec 28, 2011 8:41 pm

because we don't really have breakfast on Christmas Day and we are too excited to see my niece and nephew open their presents, we tend to pick at stuff until dinner. We pick at the crackling on the pork, the bacon from the top of the turkey and the skin from it, nuts, chocolates and too much booze, as per usual, we didn't eat much dinner. dessert was home made trifle. Mum normally makes it but dad done it this time and his hand slipped (quite a bit) when pouring the sherry onto the sponge fingers. Dad made the custard a bit too runny but it was lovely. He didn't have room to put the cream on so we just spooned it over, this year we had the Tesco's extra thick brandy cream. By god, it was strong, but blooming gorgeous. It tasted even stronger a few hours later in a mince pie, lol.

BTW, if anyone hasn't tried it yet, the Baileys extra thick cream is to die for.
