Italian Holiday Season full dinner menu with antipasto, risotto, fish dish, lemon sorbet, meat dish and dessert.
- - This menu is very rich in dishes. You'll use a lot of ingredients from fish to meat and vegetables. It's ideal to wait for midnight at New Yer's Eve according to the most authentic Italian style.
- - Most of its dishes can be prepared ahead, risotto excluded! If you want to enjoy your guests and do not spend a lot of time in your kitchen, you could replace it with smoked eel tagliatelle that does not require a lot of time.
- - Serving lemon sorbet after the grouper dish is important to clean your guests' mouth before the flavor of meat ;))
- - Duck breast cooked in pomegranate juice tastes fantastic! It is worth a try!
