I know! So many days but it also feels so soon somehow. And the fact that streets and shop windows are already decorated makes it feel even closer.
Well, I have a Christmas surprise for you! Over the six weeks that precede Christmas, I will introduce you to six Christmases around the world: gifts of knowledge, culture and recipes.
I spoke and wrote to different persons I know who all come from different countries (alright, no surprise here but one of the Christmases will be the French one and I personally will be telling you about this one). They were all delighted to participate in this project.
Over the past few weeks, I read and heard tales of amazing Christmases in some really cold and also some quite exotic places, as well as from places with are all very familiar with.
This will be obviously mostly about the food they have for Christmas. Do not expect anything too purely traditional, as each and everyone of us has a different way to celebrate it.
And in the meantime, to keep you waiting without starving, here is my Rocky White Christmas Road recipe.
I was introduced to a delicious White Christmas while celebrating Christmas in July with friends in Australia (over there, you have to organise something fun during the long Winter weeks, or else there is nothing to celebrate at all!).
My recipe differs a lot as I make it with white chocolate and no added fat (the Australian recipe uses copha, a vegetable fat shortening). I also make it more rocky roady.
The first of the Six Christmases was Irish and you can read it here.
The second was Finnish and you can read it here.
The third was Australian and here it is.
The fourth was an American Christmas with delicious cookies here.
The fifth Christmas was in Brazil, read about it here.
And finally, I told you about my family Christmas in France here.
