Best Part about the Holidays

There's a fresh dusting of snow outside. Inside, there are platters of leftover panettone and stollen.
It's feeling a lot like Christmas in AK's Kitchen.

We kicked off the holiday season with a small gathering of friends over Sunday lunch. Everyone pitched in a little something. We assembled a truly global table: Italian panettone and pan d'oro, French  macarons, Lebanese sfouf and German stollen.
Stollen from the Elmvale Bakery
We reconnected with friends we had not seen since in months. We shared laughter and music. We all took time away from the routine rush.

To be surrounded by wonderful people is a priceless gift.

Bring on the holidays.
