What we’re cooking at the holidays

Our team is made up of English trainers from around the world, each with their own special holiday food traditions. This is what we’re cooking at the holidays:

The daughter of an English mother, Alice grew up in France with some English Christmas traditions such as leaving mincemeat pies and a glass of milk out for Father Christmas and some carrots for the reindeer on Christmas Eve.

At Christmas in England, Amy’s family has a traditional Christmas dinner with roast turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.

Greg grew up in Wales, where after Christmas dinner a Christmas pudding is served along with a brandy/rum sauce.

Katrina is originally from California, US, where her family often makes banana bread around the holidays.

At Thanksgiving and Christmas in California, US, Margaret’s family serves pickled crab apples.

Mindy grew up in the US in a Pennsylvania German area, where it’s common to eat pork (Schweinebraten), sauerkraut and mashed potatoes on New Year’s Day for good luck in the new year.

Rano is originally from Uzbekistan, where they eat a rice dish called plov on special occasions such as New Year’s Eve. (For more information on Uzbek food traditions, see this YouTube video.)

Originally from Argentina, Valeria and her family eat a traditional dish at Christmas called Vitel Tone.

We hope you try and enjoy some of the holiday foods that are part of our traditions! Happy Holidays!
