Busy in the kitchen, the best cooks in the family prepare the holiday feast. The mouth-watering aroma of golden pear pie wafts in the air as the first delicious batch slowly bakes in the oven. As goes the family tradition, the first pies go to the neighbors, who always look forward to the famous pear pie with juicy fruit and the flaky buttery pastry crust. More pears are sliced and covered in a tempting layer of lemon, cinnamon and sugar. The cream is being whipped to be chilled in the fridge to go along with the ice cream to complete the jolly dessert. The heirloom recipe is followed exactly as it has been for years, including the intricate top crust that looks as beautiful as it tastes. Egg nog is passed around as the children check up on the progress of the next batch of pies, the ones that will sit on the family table where the best holiday moments are celebrated.
Holiday music plays non-stop with a mix of Xmas classics and new tunes to keep everyone moving and grooving. There is laughter, joy and happiness as more family members arrive laden with gifts to put under the shiny Christmas tree. They all pass through the kitchen, the hub of activity that beckons with the promise of festive flavors and hearty dishes. Much love and festivity is what this holiday is all about and sharing food and meaningful conversation is a highlight of the much-anticipated occasion.
