Christmas is not only for children, for grownups, too!
 Here’s how we enjoyed the season.

Whilst we wait for Christmas, between mince pies, I wanted to add something different for tea.
Spiced fruits, nuts and marzipan are in the dough, I  put colourful cherries on top of it.
Didn’t last long!


Christmas Cake

A very traditional “boozy” English Christmas cake, coated marzipan and icing.

One is for Richard’s parents, the other one is for his uncle, as one of our gifts.

Whenever we crack open a bottle of bubbly ,these are needed, aren’t they?
Chicken liver pate with cranberry jelly on brioche, 
smoked salmon&dill, ham&cheese quiche

As Richard’s parents are not keen on smoked salmon, we have this Russian fish pie with tartar sauce,  as a  starter for our Christmas dinner. 
It’s filled with fish(this year I used cod) , rice, boiled eggs and herbs , rolled with puff pastry, sprinkled with poppy seeds. Should be eaten the following day, when all flavours are fully matured.                                      

Christmas dinner table of 2011

Turkey and cranberry sauce, stuffing, roast potatoes and Brussels sprouts and chestnuts etc.
We are one of the millions of families in England to have typical “Christmasy” dinner which we love!
                                            Happy Holiday to you all !
