To celebrate the Italian-American tradition of the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve, you'll need plenty of seafood, of course. These 16 recipes have you covered, from traditional dishes like seafood stew to a fun and fancy (yes, fancy!) clam dip. Fry up a batch of extra-crunchy calamari to serve with your favorite marinara sauce and a few lemon wedges. Or try your hand at tomato-braised baccalà, which pairs beautifully with a mascarpone-enriched polenta and briny olives. No matter which recipe (or recipes) you choose, you're in for a wonderful feast.
From Potatoes au Gratin to Cocoa Cola Bundt Cake, here’s what we have on the menu.
If you're looking for a main course to anchor your holiday menu, look no further than a Christmas prime rib roast. The tender, juicy roast will not only be the most impressive (and delicious) thing on the table, but it's also easy to make. These recipes are some of our favorite showstopping savory delights, including Salt-and-Pepper Crusted Prime Rib with Sage Jus, Beef Rib Roast, and the classic Standing Rib Roast of Beef. Read on for even more Christmas prime rib roasts for your holiday dinner.
Main courses like ham or roast beef may be the star of your holiday menu, but you're going to want some tasty side dishes to accompany them, too. Think Potatoes au Gratin, Raclette-Gruyère Mac and Cheese with Pickled Shallots, and Sautéed Collard Greens with Pepperoni—yes, pepperoni—as a twist on the classic. With almost 40 to choose from, you'll have plenty to fill your table. Read on for even more of our favorite Christmas dinner side dishes.
With 2021 almost at a close, Food & Wine editors have been looking back at all of the wonderful recipes we've published over the past year, from rich, savory macaroni and cheeses to smoky simmered beans.

Sausage-Stuffed Fried Olives. Cheese Croustades. Carrots en Croûte. Turkey and sides can be the heart of a Thanksgiving menu, but the appetizers are important, too—and we've gathered over 20 different options here so you can create the snack spread of your dreams. Think dips (like Caramelized Five-Onion Dip), toasts, and little one-bite treats like Spicy Lamb Meatballs with Green Goddess Dip. In the mood for something cheesy? There's plenty of that here, too. Read on for even more of our best Thanksgiving appetizers.
Whether it plays a starring role, or is combined with other squash such as acorn or butternut, kabocha squash lends itself to all kinds of wonderful recipes. Purée it with carrots for the perfect holiday side dish, or turn it into crispy fritters paired with a yuzu-garlic dipping sauce. Roast it with maple syrup and fresh ginger, vanilla butter, or a simple combination of extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper (to be finished with crispy bulgur crumbs). Whichever method you choose, you'll have delicious results. Read on for even more kabocha squash recipes we love.
This holiday season, Food & Wine is going over the top with a celebration of all things opulent, glittering, rich, delicious, and joyful.
When it comes to Thanksgiving, menus tend to be extra by default—crisp, bubbling dishes of macaroni and cheese, mounds of creamy, gravy-laden mashed potatoes, and the star of the show, roasted (or deep-fried! Or smoked!) turkey. But why not turn it all the way up to 10? Here, we've gathered over 30 recipes to create the ultimate extra Thanksgiving spread, covering ground from impressive appetizers to unforgettable desserts. In the mood for sparkling wine? Use it to make a gorgeous (and very much adults-only) Cranberry-Orange Sparkling Wine Gelatin, or festive Citrus-Champagne Punch. Need a new gravy recipe? This one is bolstered with caramelized mushrooms, cultured butter, apple brandy, and more, resulting in layers upon layers of flavor. Whether you pick just one of these recipes or use them to curate your whole menu, you'll definitely be bringing something impressive to the table.
Holiday season really starts to ramp up in November, and in this collection, we've gathered plenty of celebratory recipes to meet the occasion. An eye-catching (and low-alcohol) Sparkling Cranberry-Ginger Punch with Toasted Spices, or Spatchcocked Smoked Turkey, or Cornmeal-Cake Trifle with Sabayon and Candied Kumquats would make stunning additions to your table (better yet, make all three). But for regular cozy fall nights, plenty of of these recipes can do double-duty—tuck into a dish of Creamy Swiss Chard Gratin with Crispy Gnocchi on the weekend, or serve it alongside turkey. Add a colorful Citrus, Beet, and Arugula Salad with Halloumi Croutons to your Hanukkah menu, or enjoy it as a bright lunch or dinner. As for desserts and drinks? Read on for those, and all of the other dishes we'll be making this month.
