Christmas Eve Dinner Menu
Easy elegance meets practicality in three joyous holiday meals: Christmas Eve dinner, and brunch and dinner on the day. Lucinda Scala Quinnâ€™s inspiration? A classic dish, reinvented.
Fennel-and-Endive Salad with Pomegranate Seeds and Walnuts
Prosecco or Cava
This stew combines all the elements of an ancient feast (the seven fishes likely represent the seven sacraments) in an innovative, sophisticated way. You will want impeccably fresh fish, shellfish, and seafood stock, so be sure to order what you need from your fishmonger ahead of time. Because this dish is all about the ingredients, your work in the kitchen takes just 15 minutes. Basil lends its fragrance to the stew and to a winter fruit salad on Christmas Day.
