The Filipino Christmas tradition won’t be complete without Noche Buena (Christmas Eve Dinner). During this special meal, families and friends gather together to share a delightful meal and wish everyone a Joyous Christmas. The dishes served usually comes from the Family’s Christmas Recipe collection, or they can be something special and only prepared once a year.
Does your family have special Christmas Recipes for Noche Buena? I know that most have their set of specialty recipes. In fact, there are so called “cooks” in the clan that are tasked to prepare these dishes. This might be your uncle, your aunt, your dad, or your mom – it might even be yourself.
However, there are situations wherein some of us have to travel away from the place that we call home to work or to permanently settle – and if you are not that designated cook, it is hard to replicate those Christmas dishes that you enjoyed. We are lucky because we have the internet. We can email our families to ask for recipes, or you can simply check out some of our recommended Christmas Recipes.
