Christmas is over. All the shopping, baking, running around non-stop flew by. But there are New Year celebrations to look forward to. Here are a trio of specials you can make: Snowball Fizz Cocktail, Stuffed Button Mushrooms with Chorizos and Cheese and the Embutido Kapampangan-style. Filipinos are known to have the longest Christmas season in the world. Christmas carols start playing in malls in the Philippines as early as September. Holiday décor goes up by October in homes and retail stores. And all these celebrations stretch out till January on the Feast of the Three Kings. New Year’s eve is celebrated in the Philippines with massive fireworks or paputok, as they’re called all over the country.
Filipinos love to celebrate, and food is at the center of every event wherever in the world we live. New Year’s eve and the first day of the year are reasons for families to gather and celebrate. If you’re hosting a family reunion or New Year’s party, I’ve put together some of my favorite recipes for you – there’s a cocktail drink, an appetizer and a main dish. The citrus cocktail is fast and quick to whip up by the table side. The mushroom appetizers can be made just before guests arrive. And the embutido loaf can be prepared a few days before the party.
What better way to ring in the New Year and welcome better times ahead with optimism and good food?
