    Despite its French sounding name (ris à l’amande, almond rice), this dessert is typical for a Danish Christmas feast. This delicious concoction based on rice pudding was invented in the 19th century, and since then it hasn’t left traditional Christmas tables in Denmark.

    The dish consists of rice pudding mixed with chopped almonds, whipped cream and vanilla, topped with sweet cherry sauce.

    The traditional spicy fish soup is eaten by Hungarian whenever they get the chance, but it also reign supreme on the Christmas menu. The soup can be prepared in several ways, either thick and creamy or clear with big chunks of fish, but in both varieties the soup is spicy and very filling.

    Doro Wat, Ethiopia

    Although the majority of the population is Muslim, there are Christian communities as well in Ethiopia, and therefore some interesting Christmas dishes as well.

    Doro Wat is made with chicken and hard boiled eggs, and eaten on injera bread from a communal bowl. Although the dish is often eaten outside the holidays too, it is an integral part of Christmas dinner in Ethiopia.
