A Traditional Holiday Menu
Mushroom soup crowned with a puff pastry crust makes an elegant beginning to our traditional menu. The centerpiece of the feast is standing beef rib roast, a classic entrée for Christmas dinner. Ours is coated with a garlic-herb crust and accompanied by a savory pan sauce, browned butter mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. For a showstopping finale, serve a dense flourless chocolate cake with whipped cream.
For this celebratory meal, set a splendid table with your finest linens and dinnerware. Bring out your sparkling stemware and pour a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon–a perfect match for the beef.
