behind the scenes
Christmas Fettuccine is definitely a thing!
Ever since The Holiday came out in *gulp* 2006 *gulp*, we’ve wondered whether Christmas Fettuccine was actually a thing. Is it really what is eaten in Los Angeles around Christmas time?! Are there particular ingredients it’s meant to include?! Can we make it a thing if it isn’t already?!
Well after extensive research, and yes we really did research this, it turns out that…the jury is still out on whether or not Christmas Fettuccine really does “exist”! So we decided that we have enough uncertainty in our lives and we would officially make Christmas Fettuccine a dish in its own right!
