Special meals deserve a special effort, and this dream team of dishes is just the ticket. First, a gooey cheese with figs — set it on the table and forgo any other finicky hors d’oeuvres. The main event is roasted pork with pretty pink applesauce and collards. Only the rosemary potatoes require a bit of finesse, but they’re easy to make and you’ll be glad you did. For dessert? A lemon curd and mascarpone trifle that’s as good-looking as it tastes. Happy holidays — and happy feasting!
