Elegant, quick and easy recipes
for New Year's Eve.


ew Year's Eve parties gen-
erally begin late. With the
main attraction at midnight,
most eats often are served after
what's considered the usual dinner
hour. In fact, many guests
will have eaten something
in the early evening to
quell pangs of hunger but
will be ready to ingest
— and imbibe — again
when a party is called for
10 p.m.
On the menu is ideal
party fare (not especially
heavy or difficult to pre-
pare or eat). I call it fork
food: One utensil is all
that's needed (especially
when some may not have
enough sit-down room).
All of the offerings can be made
ahead of time and simply tossed or
heated just before serving.
Many are just as delicious served
at room temperature for utmost

Start with appetizers. They need
not be complicated. It's all about not
a lot of ingredients and minimal
preparation. I like to fill in my choic-
es with nibbles — finger foods I
don't have to fuss over and
simply display in my most
beautiful serveware.
Dinner is uncomplicat-
ed. A simple pasta, a quick
fish dish and a flavorful
vegetable. That, with deli-
cious whole grain bread, is
all that's needed.
End the meal with
everyone's favorite: choco-
late. It's dense and creamy.
Because it's rich, I like to
serve mousse in liqueur
or shot glasses. Just a few
lush spoonfuls are plenty.
Pop the cork to your favorite bub-
bly, turn down the lights and gather
with your best and closest for a
memorable — yet, not exhausting
— evening as 2011 becomes 2012.
Happy New Year!
