Our Favorite New Year's Recipes

Happy New Year's from the FoodPair Team! Here's to a healthy and happy 2012 for you and yours!

On New Year's Eve, everyone likes to celebrate, so we've decided to feature New Year's recipes with some pop and style. Get things started with your favorite Champagne cocktail- we like ones with fresh fruit and juice in addition to a bit of the bubbly. For the rest of the meal we found an award-winning appetizer with candied bacon and apple-- after all, 2011 was the Year of Bacon in many circles. For our New Year's entree, we like baked & wrapped fish dish with vegetables. By baking the fish in parchment paper, each guest will get to unwrap their own delicious present. You can customize the dish with any fish you like (cod, halibut, salmon, snapper, sea bass, etc.), seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs (oregano, basil, rosemary, thyme, etc.).

We have over 800 recipes for Champagne to help you create inspired New Year's dishes. You can also use the FoodPair Recipe Search Engine to select your favorite ingredients or recipe sites and browse from there. To help you get started, we selected 5 recipes to create your New Year's extravaganza.
