Here’s a traditional and elegant Christmas dinner menu that will welcome guests with homey aromas of roasting and baking. For the best roast tenderloin, start with high-quality beef, from cattle raised without antibiotics or added hormones. From there it’s easy to present a fantastic centerpiece for your Christmas table. The supporting cast satisfies with luscious scalloped potatoes, green beans with almonds, a seasonal spinach and pear salad and amazing cheddar popovers that are surprisingly simple to make. Close the meal with our beautiful pear and almond tart. It can be baked early and served at room temperature to oohs and aahs as you finish your feast with good cheer.
