Merry Christmas Season to You!

As promised, I have compiled several delicious Christmas Menus to help you decide this year.  In order to achieve this, I asked my Lebanese friends, first and foremost, about their favorite dishes for Christmas. I then looked up Christmas menus of some known caterers in Lebanon, searched the web for what is trending, and then consulted my personal recipe book for my Christmas menus. Only then, I compiled this list of 10 menus for you, including at the end my Family Christmas Menu for this year.

Dry Fruits and Nuts PlatterYou will notice that I am suggesting a digestive platter at the end of my menus. I do recommend it after every rich
meal like these festive ones.

I am sure that you will find these menus inspiring. By the time you are done reviewing them, you will have your own Christmas menu already decided. Enjoy!
