The snow, the tradition, the food… Christmas and New Years in New England is the place we all want to be.

Traditional Christmas Menu

In the 1945 film, Christmas in Connecticut, Barbara Stanwyck’s character Elizabeth Lane is a food writer for the fictional Smart Housekeeping Magazine. Her traditional Christmas menu that was to be served in her New England country farm home consisted of classic favorites including candied sweet potatoes, cranberry-orange relish, roast goose with walnut dressing, giblet gravy, mince pie and old-fashioned plum pudding. What a meal!

While most Americans don’t feast like that today, even during the holidays, some of the elements of this decadent menu are still served in homes and restaurants throughout the New England region. Seasonal favorites are typically made from fresh, local ingredients including native cranberries, pure maple syrup and walnuts. Traditional holiday meals of roast turkey, herbed dressing, homemade gravy and more are all available at local establishments, including Persy’s Place, which has locations all throughout Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Code and Rhode Island.
