Karen from FamilyStyle Food combines traditional holiday courses with classic Italian flavors to create an elevated, thoughtful menu. Simple, flavorful side dishes of Creamy Cauliflower and Cannellini Puree and Spinach with Balsamic Caramelized Red Onion set the stage for a decadent main event: Slow-Cooked Pork Braised in Milk. A show-stopping Chocolate Chestnut Cake concludes this menu with a creamy, comforting dessert.

THE RECIPES:

Rosemary Roasted Marcona Almonds

Rosemary adds a festive touch to these savory nuts – its slightly piney fragrance is just right with a glass of Prosecco before the holiday meal.

Slow-Cooked Pork Braised in Milk

Pork slowly braised in milk is a classic Tuscan method that produces utterly tender and delicious meat.

Creamy Cauliflower and Cannellini Puree

This creamy purèe is a wonderful accompaniment to slow cooked pork, to catch every drop of sauce.

Spinach with Balsamic Caramelized Red Onion

A touch of balsamic brings out the natural sweetness of red onion, and I love the dark red color, like a holiday jewel on the dark green spinach.

Chocolate Chestnut Cake

Here’s a lovely cake that showcases moist layers of chocolate cake and chocolate ganache topping, with a light creamy chestnut mousse filling.
