New Year’s Eve Dining, Paleoista Style

Whatever your plans may be tonight, from attending a gala decked out in the most beautiful gown and tiara you’ve ever come across to a cozy evening spent at home with your significant other, today’s holiday is celebratory-worthy, without a doubt.

For me, there’s nothing more fitting to welcome in the New Year than to host a party at home with a small group of close friends with whom delicious food, good conversation and a a minute toast are shared.

Looking for some good ideas for hors d’oeuvre, side dishes, a main course and even a toast?

Here’s my favourite New Year’s Eve Menu:

Hors d’oeuvre

Fresh Figs

stuffed with toasted pecans, coconut oil caramelization

Uncured , Pastured Bacon Wrapped Dates (just one will do!)

Appetizers

Wild Salmon Carpaccio

served on a bed of arugula drizzled with olive oil and freshly ground black pepper

Radicchio Salad

sprinkled with fresh pomegranate, olive oil and avocado

Main
Alaskan King Crab Legs

simply steamed, served with lemon

Sides
Raw Kale Salad
Steamed Broccoli & Asparagus

Champagne Toast
Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Happy 2015!  May it be your healthiest year yet!
