Christmas Eve 2012 Menu, a mix of traditions

Torskeboller: Fried salt cod and potato balls. The Italian tradition of a “Feast of Fishes” on Christmas Eve meets Scandinavia. Serving this with Nigella Lawson’s garlicky mayonnaise.

Pork chops baked in sauerkraut and tart apples, with steamed broccolini: This year, pork loin chops from the Farm School take center stage. A nod to Jim’s Pennsylvania-Dutch homeland.

Sour-cherry coffee cake: A nod to the Schwarzwald area of Germany, in the southwest near the Rhine, whence we think the Wicklines came to America in 1736. And an excuse to use my beautiful tube pan.
