My Christmas Menu for 2022

I present to you my 2022 Christmas Menu. This year, I chose a French style menu with quality products and keeping it simple so I can enjoy this wonderful day of the year with my family without spending all my time in the kitchen.

In addition to my menu, I also give you some advices concerning the food and wine pairing by choosing for you some French wines worthy of the finest tables!

My Christmas Menu for 2022


For the aperitif, I chose salmon canapés. It’s a simple idea, but beautifully decorated with dill and lemon zest, these canapés will be a hit.

Food and wine pairing: Champagne, of course!


For the starter, I chose a classic of French cuisine: a Goat cheese, Apple & Pear Filo Parcels or Aumônières in French. Served with a green salad, these filo parcels are a quite light appetizer that will please everyone.

Food and wine pairing: This appetizer goes well with a nice white Burgundy wine such as a Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaunes or a Saint-Véran.

Main course

For the main course, I chose a very special butcher’s cut: Filet mignon of beef tenderloin, served with a red wine and Christmas spices sauce. A very refined dish, but still easy to make so that you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen.

Food and wine pairing: To accompany this beef tenderloin, I recommend you to stay in Burgundy but with a red wine of the most elegant like for example a Nuit-Saint-George or a Chassagne-Montrachet.

Side dish

To accompany this beef tenderloin, I chose two side dishes: a parsnip puree and sauteed carrots with thyme and honey.

Parsnip puree is lighter than classic mashed potatoes and is therefore particularly pleasant as an accompaniment to a hearty meal. I seasoned it with lemon and thyme to give it a fresh touch.

Sauteed carrots with thyme and honey are a great Christmas classic and go very well with beef. To give this side dish a festive touche, I chose a mix of rainbow carrots (orange, yellow and purple).


For the desserts, I have planned two mini desserts that are both delicious and easy to make, and I guarantee that they will be unanimously appreciated: Christmas Apple Roses and Chocolate Cake with Melting Heart or moelleux au chocolat.

My advice: If you have children, preparing these desserts with them will be a great activity on Christmas Day to spend a nice moment together in the kitchen!

Food and wine pairing: For these two desserts, there is nothing like a Crémant, as for exemple a Crémant de Limoux.

Bonus : decoration

As a bonus, I’m sharing this Christmas decoration idea : Oranges and Cloves.
