Christmas time means turkey with all the trimmings, ham glazed to glittering perfection, puddings full of plump fruits, little treats like spiced cookies, biscuits, nougat and nuts. With so much to take care of, the last thing the cook often thinks of is little nibbles, snacks and a first course or starter.

A few nuts, good olives and some piping hot pastries stored in the freezer are very useful come Christmas morning. In recent years, smoked salmon and gravlax have been readily available, and along with baby mixed greens, good rye or black breads or last-minute blinis (Russian pancakes), have been a mainstay for such times. For some, oysters are the ultimate treat. Most of us enjoy the surprise element of a little bite-sized nibble to enjoy with a drink to break the ice.

It is always a great pleasure to sit down to an inviting plate, perhaps very thin slices of smoked salmon, some quarters of lemon and brown bread and butter, or some simple and light dish that will stimulate, but not destroy, the appetite and set the mood for the delicious meal to follow.

Although a selection of recipes follows, there is an infinite variety of ways that they can be presented. It is a simple matter to select what will be the perfect way to start your Christmas celebrations on the right note.
