NEW YEAR'S EVE A LA FRANCAISE

Traditional American winter holiday feasts often feature hearty glazed hams, roasted potatoes, baby carrots, caramelized brussels sprouts, gravy plus lots of trimmings, eggnog and pies. But holiday food choices can be quite different if one adopts a French theme. Wine is a must and so are oysters topped with a classic mignonette sauce – this time made with blush-colored rose’ wine…so French and so romantic.
