Let’s knead our dough. First, a fine powdering of white flour snows down onto our warm, fragrant butter. Did you know that your dough will be fluffier if you sift the flour through a sieve first? We gently stretch out our golden lump of dough on the table, caress it, thank it, and shoot it into the oven, where other shapes – hearts, fir trees and moons – await it. Still fragrant, we drizzle them with a mist of Christmas confectioner’s sugar: red, white, sweet. They smell like a happy home and smiling family members. There’s no other way to put it! There’s nothing special about cooking a plate of cookies, you might say. But only when every wave of your hand is filled with love will your food be blessed by angels.
If cookies seem too simple, taste our poppy rolls – the process is the same, except that there’s a long and patient conversation to be had with the poppy seeds as well. “Hello! Where have you come from, what have you seen and what have you heard?” Finding common ground with the oranges can be a bit harder – they aren’t locals, after all. But their flavour! And if you add spices… To make a long story short, we take our Christmas holiday dishes very seriously and responsibly, as a true host should. We wish you happy holidays regardless of whose table you’ll be sitting at!
