Our traditional Christmas dinner goes :
- Smoked salmon with blinis or toast / oysters for the few who like them
- Boudin blanc with cooked apples (not sure if there's a fancier name for that)
- Fruit salad with a traditional family thing (from the North of France) called Coquille, which is basically brioche with raisins
I'm not the biggest fan of boudin blanc, but this has been the Christmas meal for all my life, so that's what Christmas is to me. In fact we split it this year between the 24th and the 25th (the dessert got paired with capon on the 24th, and got replaced by an icy variation on the yule log for the 25th) and it didn't feel quite right.
