Hosted by culinary artist and public-radio personality Carole Murko, HEIRLOOM MEALS CHRISTMAS celebrates the holiday season by delving into America's rich and diverse culinary history and honoring tried-and-true recipes and dining traditions. As she did in Heirloom Meals Thanksgiving, Murko seeks to “savor yesterday’s traditions today” while paying tribute to the dying art of cooking from scratch. She contrasts the Mexican-American tradition of making tamales on Christmas Eve with the old-world Austrian-American custom of preparing a Christmas goose.
