What do you find important in a new year party?

Everyone enjoys, but also helps with good and wine pouring.

What should really not be missing on the table?

A lot of glitz and glamour! A beautiful, with a lot of candles covered the table and everyone in a nice outfit. They may even excel!

No warm wine, yuk, that you can smell from a distance, at christmas markets and is often much too sweet.

Delivers meals to organize you stress? (And what do you do to counter?)

Stress and cooking will never be good and it is still party, so I make it myself not to hard and plan. I plan absolutely everything, beginning with that a week before the dinner. Then I set the table already, I order ingredients and beverage online and get af or later deliver what can. I cut everything the day before, so everything in the fridge ready to start cooking. I have my recipes always to hand and read and re-read everything first good for to begin with cooking. Afterwards, I put all the necessary ingredients for each dish together at the kitchen sink so nothing to forget.

You have a fixed feesttraditie?

My mom and I are together always in the kitchen, and tradition wants that we after a few hours of preparation are thirsty. We crack than get a bottle of champagne in the kitchen and feast on blinis with roe and cream. Afterwards we fly back in.
