A Special Christmas Dinner

Menu email to a friend
This unusual salad is a wonderful starter to the meal. Toasted bread slices are rubbed with sage and pumpkinseed oil, then topped with vinegary apples, honey-roasted pumpkin salad and finely chopped persimmons. If ever there is a time of year to treat your family to a whole beef tenderloin, Christmas is it. Don't be intimidated by the size of the roast or the precise cooking times. A fillet of beef is easy to cook as long as you have a meat thermometer handy. Be sure to let the meat rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing to allow the juices and flavors to set. Popovers and blue cheese are naturals in their own right with beef, but when combined into one, the results are incredible. This recipe is not complicated but it must be made and served at the last minute to ensure the best results. If you are not a fan of blue cheese, try using a crumbly goat cheese in its place. Mashed potatoes get a colorful makeover with the addition of chopped plum tomatoes and thinly sliced scallions. If you are making these ahead of time, hold off on stirring in the tomatoes and scallions until you have reheated the potatoes. Plum pudding is a holiday staple. Baked in individual molds, it becomes an elegant dessert. Jam packed with dried currants, raisin, apricots, almonds and spices, the puddings are flavorful enough on their own, but can be dressed up with a swirl of whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a pool of crème anglaise. Merry Christmas!
