The Christmas lunch menu first it should include both the traditional Italian recipes and a presentation of the dishes a little more accurate than usual. All in an easy way and within everyone's reach. Even those who are not really skilled chefs in the kitchen.

Establish a quick and easy Christmas menu perhaps it is a bit risky because as we know there are many things to prepare. But you can simplify the effort by choosing easy recipes, without too many steps and playing a lot on the presentation of the dishes. That will already embellish the table.

We propose one series of very simple but successful recipes that everyone always likes, and that you can anticipate even from the day before.

Which certainly does not mean eating badly, on the contrary it does focus on the quality of raw materials And treat yourself to something good on Christmas day that we would not allow ourselves during the year. For example a good wine or a good salmon or of fine meat or a particular cheese. Without necessarily spending a fortune.

After all, Christmas is a simple celebration of tradition and of the family coming together.

So what to prepare for the quick and easy Christmas lunch menu?

The Christmas lunch menu should first of all include:

  • a simple aperitif based on prosecco or white wine to combine with appetizers made by you.
  • Then continue with a starter delicious
  • a first course in broth, usually tortellini or cappelletti
  • a second course of meat which can be directly the boiled meat of the broth and a side dish.
  • Finally, gluttons cannot be missing traditional Christmas sweets.

Compared to the dinner on Christmas Eve where instead you eat only fish, on Christmas day meat is preferred.
