Christmas Eve Lunch
To my dear, lovely readers, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.
Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, I hope it involves good food, warmth, laughter and love. I will absolutely be sharing all our Christmas fun with you in the coming week. There will be lots of wonderful eats to report back on, you can count on that. Starting with mum putting the pork shoulder in the oven overnight....oh yes. I can hardly wait.
But for now, a nice introduction to a weekend of family fun and festive eats. It began with a lunch of Dad's homemade woodfired Ciabatta, Pizza, Wine and Macaroons.
Dad's Ciabatta was just superb. His best bread creation yet, absolute perfection.
Especially when drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkled with Rosemary and Smoked Sea Salt.
A simple Potato and Zucchini with Parmesan and Rosemary.
Into the oven!
And another of Goat Curd, Asparagus, Crushed Walnut, Truffle Oil and Egg.
To finish: David Lebovitz's Coconut, Chocolate Macaroons (recipe link). I'm not a macaroon fan, but could appreciate these as very good macaroons!
Merry Christmas, lovelies. Love from Walter, the birdie, and me.
