Joyeux Noël!

I'm visiting my family here in Québec, Canada, and it is wonderful to see everybody!

Our tables are filled with "victuailles", enough for an army (when there is only six of us). Tourtières (French Canadian meat pies) take center stage. They are surrounded by ragoût de pattes de cochon (pig's hock stew), turkey, and, bien sûr, la bûche de Noël.

My mother spent hours cooking up everything and I wish I had been with her. I heard about it all over the phone, during one of our many Saturday morning conversations. Oh well... one day I'll have a family and I'll be cooking up a storm for them.

The traditional French-Canadian recipes will follow shortly. Joyeux Noël à tous!
