Here's a holiday menu that's positively... genius! We've picked through our Automagic Holiday Menu Maker and sourced all the recipes that we here at Food52 call Genius. Together, they make an astounding assortment.

Start off with Jacques Pépin's cheesy catch all dip, make your way through Lynne Curry's sumptuous prime rib cut softened with herb butter, and finish off with a Food52 classic, Dorie Greenspan's World Peace cookies. With a set up like this, it's almost impossible to slip up. These recipes aren't genius for nothing. If you want to add or subtract to what we have here, head over to the Menu Maker and customize a list of your own.
