Menu: A Wintry Vegetarian Dinner
The rich Mediterranean-inspired flavors of this simple menu make up an elegant meatless feast, perfect for celebrating the holiday season with family and friends. Begin your party with a leisurely cocktail hour, with a generous spread of marinated cheese and vegetables paired with fresh-baked olive bread. When the appetizers run out, sit down for a light, flavorful Brussels sprouts salad, followed by a creamy-tart lemon risotto. Finish the night on a sweet note with festive nutmeg cake — or send guests home with mini cakes of their own.
