Nochebuena & Nochevieja

19 Dec

Well, ¡Feliz Navidad!

In Spain they call Christmas Eve, Nochebuena. As a Catholic country they have certain traditions. But I can already reveal that I’m not going to celebrate a typical Spanish Christmas, nor am I going to Denmark for the holiday. But… It doesn’t seem so bad after all. I’ve found out that I had some money to go get some special food. I’ve also planned what I am going to eat for Christmas and New Year’s Eve.  The fact is that Los Tres Reyes Magos is more important than Christmas itself.

With this I’m actually saying that I really miss Denmark. So, what can I do? I’m going to eat duck – with a touch of Denmark! And New Year’s Eve I’m going to eat fondue. And I’m not going to forget the champagne. For me these ocasions are so important, and these traditions I’ve learned from when I was little. But I’ll try to mix it with a Peruvian touch.

Hunting marcipan

I didn’t know that if was SO impossible to find marcipan in Spain. I’ve asked different places, but they all showed me what I wasn’t looking for. So… luckily I’ve read in the Internet about homemade marcipan. I’ve bought what I needed to make my New Year-cake, so now we’ll see how it’ll turn out. I’m so excited!

Tomorrow I’ll go back to La Boquería to buy the duck, and friday, the best part: I’ll go to Merca Barna to pick up my Asti Spumante!

2012 has been a very special year for me, so I’ll try to finish it with style, and of course enter 2013 with good memories and STYLE!

And I honestly believe that food really makes the mood!

Nochevieja

images Nochevieja is New Year’s Eve. What can I say? Somehow I love it, somehow it’s sad. One more year has passed, and together we look back at all the memories. Looking forward to make some news in the year to come. For once in my life I have no clue what the new year will bring.

How do you celebrate Christmas and New Years’s Eve? And where you from?

¡Feliz Navidad! y ¡Próspero Año Nuevo! Bon Nadal i Prósper Any Nou! Glædelig Jul og Godt Nytår! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
