Obviously, a huge part of Christmas is sharing a meal with your family and friends. This is what our Christmas Eve dinner looked like:

Smoked salmon Christmas parcels on Christmas Tree Croutons
Quails Eggs with Caviart
Moroccan and Provencal Olives


Tomato and Red Onion Tarte Tartin


Some of the dishes:
Roast Chicken (with Cranberry and Sage stuffing)
Smoked Turkey
Chipolatas in Bacon
Roast Potatoes

Pavlova with Vanilla Cream and Summer Berries
Pink Marbled Meringues
Homemade Peanut and Cherry Ice-Cream
Frozen Lemon Cream with Summer Berries
Plus - my mom made this beautiful bowl of ice which we filled with more berries

What did you enjoy for your Christmas meal? To my fellow Southern Hemisphere inhabitants, do you stick to a traditional Christmas menu or do you embrace something more season-appropriate? (We couldn't even think about heavy Christmas desserts for our evening!)


  1. This looks like a spread t a 5 star restaurant! Yummy!

  2. Food fit for a king and queen!! I just have one question: Why was I not invited?:-)

  3. WOW! This all looks amazing! It definitely looks like the cuisine of a 5 star restaurant!
