Fish with Horseradish Sauce Recipe

south beach event catering personal chef


Traditions: Growing up every Christmas Eve we would head to my Babci and Dziadzi's house and have the traditional meatless dinner complete with "special" wine. Then it was at my Mum's with the addition of some Italian things. I've taken over night before's feast and have added Ryba W Sosie Chrzanowym. Here is the recipe. It was a hit with our Polish PopUps this year in London.
