  1. Christmas turkey

A very common tradition is to eat turkey on the very day of Christmas. Usually, people serve it with cabbage, but there may also be vine leaves, fermented veggies, cheese pastry, etc. It’s important to have meat on the 25th because it’s the first day after the Nativity fast and one can consume meat products. So, after all, “You only live once…have turkey and goose this Christmas.”

2. Kapama

Even if it doesn’t sound familiar to you, you’ll most likely recognize this meal. It’s mostly called this way on the Balkans – Greece, Bulgaria and other countries. Basically, kapama consist of fermented cabbage (a.k.a. sauerkraut), mince, vine leaves stuffed with meat, sausage and bacon. Of course, this is what the perfect kapama is made of. Other variations may or may not include any of these products.
