Tips for a genuine Texel Christmas dinner

Are you wondering what will make your Christmas dinner really special? We have lots of inspiring ideas you’ll love for a home-made, genuine Texel Christmas dinner! But if you’re tired of standing in the kitchen all Christmas, why not sample the festive menus at one of Texel’s restaurants of beach cafés?

Some inspiring ideas for your Texel-themed Christmas dinner

Texel has an exceptionally large range of authentic regional products that will make a wonderful seasonal dinner. And of course, you can wash it all down with a real Texel tipple.

Texel cheese

Wezenpyk Cheese Farm produces traditionally made cheese and its special Christmas Cranberry Pepper Cheese is available from the farm shop. Until stocks last!

Texel meat

Texel is famous for its lovely, tender lamb. This top-quality meat must be from lambs that have spent at least 100 days out in the fields before it can make a claim for the Waddengoud quality stamp. Butcher’s shop Slagerij-eetwinkel Moormann & de Boer also sells beef, pork and chicken that is locally farmed on Texel. In fact, you can even order their meat and cooked meat.

Texel shiitake

At Texel’s mushroom farm Texelse Paddenstoelenkwekerij, they grow mushrooms by hand. It’s all completely organic and you can actually taste the care that goes into them! The farm’s own website has lots of recipes for Texel shiitake.

Fresh fish

For obvious reasons, there are plenty of specialist fishmongers on Texel offering an extensive range of fried, smoked and fresh fish.

The sweetest season on Texel

One of Texel’s most well-known confectioneries is Baker Timmer’s Hoornderring. Served with cream, it makes a delicious dessert. Or perhaps you prefer some peerless Texel chocolate with your coffee? Take a mouth-watering look at De Texelse Chocolaterie.
