Holiday food traditions.
We asked our Sunset recipe testers to tell us their favorite dishes for family gatherings. Share yours at sunset.com/ kitchenconversation.
"My husband Russ's cioppino on Christmas Eve."
"Sauerkraut, in honor of my German grandmother."
"My Serbian mom's burek--filo dough layered with a cottage cheese, cream cheese, and egg filling."
"Little meatballs with a cranberry, currant jelly, and wine sauce, to go with latkes at Hanukkah. Kind of retro, but there was never ever a party on my husband's side without them."
"Turkey curry with inventive condiments--one for each of the ceramic dishes on my mom's lazy Susan."
"While we open presents on Christmas afternoon, we eat Artichoke Nibbles, the old Sunset recipe my mom has been making since the '70s. Always a winner!"
