My dear readers,
We know that joy and cheerfulness are the key words of New Year, an evening of sharing and friendship.
Today, I would like to share with you this tradition that gives me a certain satisfaction every year. To celebrate the New Year’s waiting with the people who are dear to me and to start a new one with them is what is essential for me.
On the evening of December 31, I will prepare my favourite recipes so that we are all gathered around an exquisite meal.
It is with great pleasure that I will share my culinary creations. Foie Gras candies with mango and raspberry jelly, star-shaped bites of gingerbreads, roasted scallops, fennel with honey and orange, chocolate truffles will be at the rendezvous.
At the end of the year, if you need to escape, nothing prevents you from choosing a foreign destination to celebrate this New Year.
In such cases, I must keep you informed of international customs. My kind readers, it is traditional in France to share a gastronomic dinner while communicating its future resolutions but the customs are different abroad!
You wish to live a year of prosperity placed under the sign of luck? Spain is waiting for you! On the twelve strokes of midnight, swallow one by one the twelve grains of grapes.
On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, in Colombia, the custom is to go around the neighbourhood with an empty suitcase, it promises you a full year of travel!
There are many traditions around the globe, but celebrating this last day of the year with family and friends remains fundamental to start with serenity the New Year.
See you soon!
