Merry Christmas everyone. I hope at the moment everyone is rugged up in their nice warm homes awaiting Santas visit. Spare a thought for those less fortunate or in travel chaos who just want to get home or maybe somewhere warmer.
We were treated to a menu of:
Cabbage stuffed with chestnuts
Goats cheese, lentil and beetroot salad
Cream of garlic soup with pea and chervil mousse
Confit of quail with pomme sarladaise
Belly of Pork with with white beans
Cheese and coffee
Stand out courses that had the room buzzing - cream of garlic soup, confit of quail, and the vacherin glace.
How lucky we were this time to be able to sit and eat at dinner, although Nick couldn't help but get stuck in to the cooking and I was practicing holding three plates whilst serving and clearing up each course.
I love entertaining, I love the smiles on people faces when they are pleased with what they're eating, where they are and the people they're with.
Thanks everyone who has supported Nick and I this year as we embarked on our Gourmet Lovers quest to eat well and share the love with friends, old and new.
Many more Brunch and Supper club events to come in 2011
