Christmas Desserts in a Warm Winter
Traditionally, a Christmas dinner is finished with a dessert. Where you live, and your cultural background largely determines what this dessert will be. In most European and Northern hemisphere countries, a rich, warm dessert follows a large roast meal, which might include several choices of roast meats or fowl. In Southern hemisphere countries such as Australia and New Zealand, we have tended to follow our cultural past, and adopted the same style of meal.
In the case of the northerners, this makes sense. The celebration meal suits the cold winter climates. For us in the south, it makes no sense and in recent times there has been a change in the style of Christmas meal being prepared. Barbecues and light meals replace the stodgy, fatty traditional fare.
Chocolate is a perfect addition to any of these deserts – either as part of the desert itself, perhaps shaved over the top of a pav, or as chopped up pieces in a fruit salad, or as just chunks on top of a bowl of ice cream.
