LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

OUR CHRISTMAS DINNER MENU

This is a heavy meal and we thought we better make it simpler, perhaps with fewer courses. We might add a soup in but it looks pretty enough already. There are many bits which we can precook. We do not want to be spending too much time in the kitchen especially when Mr Washy is off. More time to spend together.

Olives to start with again. What else is better than olives to begin your evening with some wine.

Prosciutto ham wrapped rocket with slices of sauteed apples. No cooking needed. We will saute the apples on Christmas Eve.

A medley of tapas. This should be simple enough. We can preboil a few eggs and keep them in the fridge. Cold egg with truffle oil is yums.

Freshly baked foccacia bread for dipping and also because we have a gravy dish to come. We can make use of the foccacia from the day before or just make a new one. This is easy peasy.

A rabbit stew with endives...We are definitely making this the day before. Stews are always better a day after.

Served with saffron risotto.

A nocino for dessert.
