With the holidays around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what you will prepare for your family this time of year.

International food consultant, Jeff Spear joined Melissa Ross Tuesday on First Coast Connect to discuss his new cook book as well as his own family holiday recipes.

Holiday food traditions vary from coast to coast, and every family has their “must have” food items every year for holiday foods.

Spear presents a few recipes from his new cook, showing the versatility of holiday meals.

“The first one is a sweet potato pie. So, that now replaces my mom’s pumpkin pie. Sorry mom!” said Spear on First Coast Connect.

“I’m working my way through some chocolate cakes. There will be a chocolate cake in my immediate future. It’s one of those flourless chocolate cakes. So, it’s basically a candy bar in a pan.”

With all the different holiday food traditions across the country, which one will you choose to make for your family? Spear shared with WJCT some of his favorite holiday recipes.
