Planning to party on New Year’s Eve? It’s a special night that demands something out-of-the-ordinary. Caviar, foie gras, Champagne and truffles are all impressive ingredients to bring to the table, but how will you serve them?
To help make it an elegant evening, we offer seven recipes that are well-suited to the occasion. We hope you have a happy New Year!
Don’t let these simple canapes fool you; they’re layered with complex flavors and textures – crisp pear, creamy ricotta, rich, buttery Jambon de Bayonne and truffle honey. Easy to prep ahead of time and assemble just before the party begins.
It wouldn’t be New Year’s Eve without caviar! These yeasted blini are buttery and light as air, the perfect vehicle for our sustainable, farm-raised French caviar. It’s a simple and classic as you can get.
This canape has all the bases covered – rich, creamy, salty, crunchy, sweet – and it’s a cinch to throw together with our Mousse of Foie Gras and a fine raisin bread.
Classic, cheesy gougeres are already a cocktail hour favorite, but add our Black Truffle Butter, and they become completely irresistible. These must be served immediately after they come out of the oven, so plan ahead.
Generously filled with silky, truffle-studded foie gras, these crispy choux puffs make the perfect special occasion appetizer … and an unforgettable New Year’s Eve treat.
Fill crisp, buttery puff pastry shells with an earthy mixture of meaty wild mushrooms then top with a creamy cheese sauce for party perfect hors d’oeuvres that will satisfy vegetarians and meat eaters alike! To save time, use good-quality pre-made vol-au-vent shells. Trust us, you want to take this shortcut.
Our French Tarbais Beans serve as the base for this creamy, truffle-studded dip. Great for parties – especially on New Year’s Eve – when served with your favorite raw veggies, crackers or toasted baguette.
