    Christmas Cookbooks and Recipes


    Christmas Ornament Christmas is an annual holiday that marks the birth of Jesus. It is celebrated by most (but not all Christians), and has in modern times also become a secular holiday.

    Christmas Day is the date on which the birth of Jesus is marked.
    • For most Christian denominations (and secular celebrations), it is observed on December 25th.

    • The Armenian Apostolic Church observe it on January 6th.

    • Many Eastern Orthodox Churches use the Julian Calendar for calculating the dates. As a result, they celebrate on the Julian Calendar's December 25th, which currently is January 7th in the Gregorian calendar.
    Many special foods are prepared and eaten during the period around Christmas, and there are also many traditions associated with it.

    Some Christmas recipes and dishes include:
    • Barszcz - This Polish dish is the Polish version of borscht. It is a soup made from red beetroot, onions, garlic and other vegetables. Although meats are sometimes added, on Christmas Eve a vegetarian version of soup is eaten with small dumplings (uszka). The dumplings are filled kapusta kiszona (the Polish version of sauerkraut) or mushrooms.

    • Christmas cake - This is a fruitcake originating from British cuisine. There are many different variations on the basic idea, but is usually a rich fruit cake, often covered with marizpan, and then a hard white icing.

    • Christmas pudding - This a traditional British recipe. It is a steamed dessert eaten which is usually eaten on Christmas Day, but because it keeps very well, and maturing is said to improve the flavor, is traditionally prepared many weeks in advance of Christmas. Christmas pudding is made from suet (congealed fat) with dried fruit and nuts mixed in, and alcoholic beverages (such as brandy) are poured into it, in order to add moisture. Christmas pudding is often eaten with brandy butter (a sauce made from unsalted butter, sugar and brandy), cream or custard.

    • Mince pies - This is a traditional British recipe for small pies (about the size of a cupcake). In historical times, actual meat was used in these pies, but today, the pies are filled with minced fruit and nuts (chopped raisins, currants, apricot, cherries, walnuts, etc., with spices in suet). Mince pies are traditionally eaten with brandy butter (a sauce made from unsalted butter, sugar and brandy).

    • Pasulj - This is a traditional Serbian recipe. It is soup made from beans.

    • Pumpkin pie - This is a dessert made from a pie crust filled with a pumpkin-based custard. The custard is usually flavored using spices such as cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Pumpkin pie is usually eaten at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween, and is traditionally served with whipped cream.

    • Roast chestnuts - Roast chestnuts are a popular dish in the Winter in general, and during the Christmas period in particular.

    • Sarmale - This is a Romanian recipe for cabbage rools. The rolls are stuffed with ground meat, rice and onions, and are often eaten on Christmas Eve and at Easter. Serbian cuisine has a similar dish, known as sarma, which is eaten at the same times of year.

    • Sült - This Estonian dish is jellied meat, and is usually eaten with sauerkraut. Estonians generally eat the dish during the Winter months, but especially at Christmas.

    • Turkey - Roast turkey is very popular in many countries as the main dish of Christmas dinner (the main meal of the day, often eaten at lunch time though).

      Roast Turkey

    • Vánocní cukroví - This is a Czech recipe for cookies. The cookies are usually attractively decorated.

      Vánocní cukroví - Christmas Cookies

    • Vánocka - This is a Czech recipe. It is a cake made from eggs and butter, and also contains raisins and almonds. Lemon rind and nutmeg are also used to flavor the dough. The dough is then made into braids, these are stacked, and then finally the cake is cooked.

    • Yule log - In some countries, large logs, known as "Yule logs", are burned at Christmas. This tradition dates back to pre-Christian times, when the Winter solstice was known as "Yule". In cookery, Yule logs, are a dessert, usually chocolate flavored, made in the shape of a log, that is inspired by this ancient tradition.
