Martha's All-Time Favorite Christmas Menus and Moments
Menu: Christmas Brunch on the Farm in Bedford
Menu: Christmas Eve Dinner in Maine
Martha understands that when in Maine, your holiday meal must include lobster! At Skylands, her home on Mount Desert Island, she went all out and served venison as well, not to mention countless elegant apps and sides and three different desserts.
Menu: Christmas Dinner in East Hampton
At Lily Pond, Martha's 19th-century cottage in the Hamptons, Martha's holiday feast revolved around a lavish classic -- prime rib! She paired it with both traditional and newfangled side dishes and kicked off the meal with her go-to holiday party starter -- oysters.
Remembering: A Magical Woodland Christmas in Bedford
Martha transforms a cottage on her farm into an enchanted winter woodland, using bears, deer, mushrooms, and evergreens to decorate everything from the tree and stockings to the cookies and gingerbread house.
Remembering: Mr. and Mrs. Maus' Fruitcake
Martha pays tribute to Mr. and Mrs. Maus, her next-door neighbors from childhood, and their unforgettable fruitcake recipe.
Remembering: Loving Gifts
Martha reflects on a Christmas message inspired by O. Henry’s short story "The Gift of the Magi" -- self-sacrifice and thoughtful giving are what really matter, not piles of presents under a tree.
