Home for the holidays (+ video)

Merry Christmas! It’s wonderful to be back home warm and safe with my family and friends. I’m practically going into a food coma thinking about the holiday meals I’ve been eating..

Christmas Eve brunch at Paul’s:ย Thomas Keller’s mushroom quiche by Paul

Homemade rosemary and clove infused vodka by Ara

The Christmas Eve brunch group photo!

Taurin’s grandparents have an amazing Christmas tree full of vintage ornaments and lights

I think it took at least two hours to open up all the presents. The kids were so excited.

Christmas Eve dinner: perfectly roasted pork, veggies, and mashed potatoes + gravy

Taurin’s aunt is a chef based in southern France, and she baked just about everything on the dessert table

My chocoflan: tres leches flan + dark chocolate cake covered in caramel

Santa says hello!

The Christmas dinner at my family’s house: Momofuku pork belly ssam with all the fixings, steamed king crab legs, soba noodle salad, and matcha ice cream mochi

Pork belly lettuce wrap with aย dollopย of homemade peanut ssamjiang

P.S. I’m participating in Craft it Forward!
