Fuyu Persimmons
Strudel is one of the classic winter culinary traditions in Italy and ubiquitous during the holidays, specifically in the two provinces of Trentino and Alto Adige or Sudtirol, mountainous areas bordered by Austria at the north and Switzerland to the northwest, as well as in Friuli Venezia-Giulia and on the Istrian peninsula. Hand-pulling strudel to paper thinness seems intimidating but it’s a wonderful activity that can involve the whole family. Here, the strudel is served with a sauce made from persimmons, which grow throughout northern Italy. Persimmons’ bright orange adds a splash of color perfect for festive occasions like the holidays. This strudel would also be delicious with some vanilla gelato.

Of course, the primary food group featured at any good Irish funeral is booze. With all that alcohol, a groaning board of food was necessary to help absorb some of it so the drinking could continue through the night. One of the old reliables was a Wake Cake.

While walking on the beach with my friend Judith Anne, I was discussing my recipe of the month for our website and that I hadn’t decided on one that would suit the Easter holidays. She said, "Hot cross buns!" and before we knew it, the recipe was developed, a quick and easy muffin with golden raisins and cranberries. When I got home, I put together these muffins, which are similar in flavor to the traditional yeast bun, but less time-consuming to make. The muffins are moist and keep well.

Rice pilaf
Rice pilaf dishes are common in many different cuisines, including Middle Eastern, East Asian, and Caribbean. A pilaf is essentially rice cooked in a broth with a mix of vegetables and spices.In this case, you aren’t using the Instant Pot’s “rice cooker” setting like you might expect, as this dish really develops its flavor over long periods of time. The “rice cooker” setting is better suited to simply steam rice on its own.This dish is delicious with a hearty roast chicken.25 Rice Dishes That Will Make You Forget Potatoes

Pudding
It is difficult to make Christmas pudding in small batches – it just doesn’t seem right – so make plenty and give extras away as presents. This recipe makes enough for two large basins but you can make whatever size you want. Only the cooking times will vary. I usually make the puddings in September and store it in a dark cool place or in the fridge until Christmas. They can, however, be kept for a year if refrigerated."The flavours of Matusalem Sherry are so intense it is almost like drinking Christmas pudding – not a wine for glugging. Surprisingly, Port is a good match for the pudding and you can carry on drinking it with the Stilton afterwards “à l’Anglaise”. But at home we usually have Sauternes – à la Française!
