New Years 2012 in Santiago, Chile

When deciding on what to do for New Years, this year the plan was to cook at home and go out after dinner. And it proved to be the best decision.

To celebrate the holiday in my new home of Chile, we opted for some dishes with some Chilean flavor combined with some of my California and American styles.

Dinner consisted of a number of different items. And at midnight, I got to engage in the Chilean custom of drinking a Ponche a la Romana, a mixture of pineapple sorbet and champagne (see below)
