3, 2, 1….Happy New Year!

Not all of my friends are as much into cooking as me. So when I proposed to take care of the New Year’s Eve menu I made their day. 🤣

I decided to transform the dinner into an experience.

Since I had to cook anyway, and of course, design the menu, putting all the courses on a piece of paper wasn’t much of an effort. Instead, it turned out to be a great family-team work: my husband and I came up with the menu and my daughter invented some fancy titles and typed it on the computer.

Although a lot of the dishes are neither particularly fancy nor complicated, a nice presentation and the printed menu will elevate them from an everyday meal to New Year’s Eve fine dining.

And of course, the dinner will culminate with 12 grapes at midnight, a Spanish tradition for good luck in the new year.
