Christmas lunch this year is being hosted at my folks place here at the River which basically means Mom is responsible for the menu; Starter, Mains and Dessert. Nothing out of the ordinary there, but as it goes, we tend to gravitate to the same types of dishes every year. This year with the aunts, uncles, cousins and little ones, it seems the final count will be 20 adults and 10 children.
The last time Christmas lunch hosted at my folks place was 4 years ago while Pete and I were still living in Mauritius so we missed out on:
Mock crayfish cocktail
Beef fillet with a brandy and cream sauce served on blanched baby marrow
and carrot match sticks with crispy roasted potatoes
Individual crème brûlée’s & individual berry pavlova’s
This is where you come in.
