24 Les Poissonchat’s Wondrous Advent Calendar – Joyeux Noel

Joyeux Noel, Merry Christmas my dear friends from near and far, may you have a Very French one! 

This is Les Poissonchat’s Wondrous Advent Calendar! Advent calendars are a huge tradition where I come from: you make little gifts for your loved ones every day until Christmas Day, fourandtwenty little surprises. The advent calendars come in beautifully old fashioned prints on cardboard, with extra glitter, and each day there’s a paper door waiting for you to pry open. Others are more elaborate, pretty baskets filled with twenty four numbered parcels, decorated with red velvet ribbons. The one I’m making for you this season is altogether a different one, and, quite obviously, it’s about beloved France, Christmas in France, and after all, what it takes to celebrate a proper French Christmas.

  1. Well, oysters, with Champagne, same as you! But then we defect to Italy with a seafood pasta.

    But in Christmas Day, we will make a modified recipe of yours, the incredible foie gras, with griottes- only we need to tuck it into already made duck. Yours was spectacular, never to be forgotten.!! Merry Christmas to you and family, including the furry ones.


  2. Merry Christmas dear Selina to you and your family. Thoroughly enjoyed opening your Advent Calendar. Now feeling much more French. Joyeaux Noel. ✨✨✨✨✨
