What’s On Your New Year’s Eve Dinner Table?
Menu Ideas For The New Year’s Celebration
On New Year’s Eve, we all stay up and celebrate the end of a year and are hopeful for the new one. As it has been since times immemorial, the celebration always involves food and drinks, music, dancing and a hefty amount of joy.
The New Year’s Eve dinner is one of the most important of the entire year. We invest time and effort to make it look and taste perfect so that at midnight we celebrate in style with our loved ones.
Today, people pay more attention to what they eat and how it affects their body. From traditional or rustic to the newer lifestyle requirements, a festive dinner is something that everybody can enjoy according to their specific dietary needs.
Especially for this occasion, I’ve summoned a few fellow food bloggers and asked if they could bring a variety of festive dinner ideas. The result is here, and I hope you will enjoy and adopt some of these ideas for your special festive dinner.

To make the menu complete, add to the above link a Boeuf Salad for an appetizer and another round of Cozonac which you would have already baked for Christmas. We always do a repeat, to get more of the festive feeling!
