Hello and Happy Holidays to everyone. We trust you had a food filled Christmas and if you're anything like us it hasn't really stopped.

We had great fun at our orphans Christmas party as we ate our way through the day with a plethora of meats, cheese, vegetables, nut roasts, topped off with some flambe style baked alaska. Not to mention the close to 14 hours of continuous wine drinking which made the mid afternoon sing star competition quite popular.
After Christmas we've been enjoying our left overs and working up to another party we're catering for New Years. We're doing Beef Wellington and sliders and maybe a little Whiskey sorbet.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you some of the photos from Christmas.

Nicks festive fig and walnut bread went down a treat still warm from the oven as Christmas morning breakfast

Riches pickled pears which went perfectly with the home roasted ham and some cheddar

 The boys got manly with meats as they prepared the spit roast with the porchetta and lamb

Course 1 was a perfectly medium rare steak sandwich and refreshing salad. A nice light start...

Followed later in the afternoon by that drool inducing lamb and an apple and walnut salad. OMG the combinations were so mouthwatering.

Mels Christmas Gyozas,  turkey, cranberry and stuffing. A Christmas explosion in your mouth!

The main course in the christmas feast. The 8 hour spit roasted porchetta, PERFECTION with roasted veggies.


And finally my pièce de résistance....  The Christmas pudding ice cream baked alaska!!!
We had heaps of fun prepping these babies which were made with ginger nut loaf cake topped with the ice cream which was so popular at Christmas brunch earlier in the month and finished off with Italian meringue cooked by either blow torch or flambe'd with vodka as you can see below. FUN!!

That was out glutenous feast, and in-dispersed some pretty awesome karaoke and Christmas films and a bit of a rave at the end of the night to work off the food all shared with the best of friends. Right now we're prepping for the NYE party so I have to get back to blini making. Happy New Year lovers, see you on the flip side xx

p.s Brunch club is happening 22nd Jan, email for spots.

This is a good looking Alaska! Much more appetising than the one I had at Petrus just before Christmas (which by the way was my first Alaska ever. Looks like you had a great party.
