Recipes for New Year’s Eve, However You Celebrate

There is no script for New Year's Eve, and whether you prefer to ring in the new year solo or surrounded by friends, we all have to eat! No matter what you have planned, we've got the perfect recipe to suit your celebration.

Family Fun

Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI Cheese Fondue
If you have little ones in the house, midnight may come a little early, but you can still party! Specifically, how about a fondue party? Serve alongside cubed bread, soft pretzels, apple slices, and family-favorite veggies, like blanched broccoli.

Fine Dining

Squab with Quince Paste and Pumpkin Farro
New Year's Eve is the perfect excuse for a dinner party, so why not try something new? Squab with Quince Paste and Pumpkin Farro is a cozy, rustic dinner that's special enough to wow your friends and family.

The French Way

Oysters with Cranberry Mignonette
Celebrate the French way with champagne and oysters! This simple cranberry mignonette is right in season, perfectly tart atop sweet, plump oysters.

Quiet and Contemplative

Curry Udon Noodles
For many, New Year's Eve is a quiet time to reflect on the past year and set intentions for the year to come. Nurture your body and your soul with a bowl of something warm and cozy, like these udon noodles in a savory Japanese curry broth.

Sweet New Year

Chocolate Sabayon Torte
Finish the year on a sweet note with a decadent chocolate mousse cake. Rich and not-too-sweet, we can't think of a better way to celebrate.

Cocktail Party

Sparkling holiday punch
This cocktail was designed for a special celebration! You can make a batch version by combining the ginger liqueur, tangerine juice, and bitter in a pitcher. Guests can serve themselves, finishing their glass with a splash of sparkling wine. Candy cranberries for garnish, if you like!
