Fames est optimus coquus! Or is it? Christmas Day Dinner...

Joyeux Noël à tous!
(Merry Christmas Everyone!)

I've been posting a lot of food pictures lately I realise. Since this is partially a food blog I won't apologise. I will say however, that until the 31st, I will try to abstain from photographing every course! Perhaps by then I will have located a card reader and will be able to stop using my iPhone to capture low-quality pictures that don't quite do my subjects justice. But bear with me, as I give you...

Christmas Day Dinner:

Foie gras on toast (sweet and gingerbread); Caviar with créme fraiche on blinis; Pigs in a blanket; Sweet tomatoes; Parma ham, hard-boiled quail egg and tomato brochettes

Smoked Salmon with créme fraiche (whipped with shrimp and horseradish and topped with salmon eggs)

Roasted Goose with pork and vegetable stuffing along with potatoes roasted in goose fat and broccoli

Bûche de Noël glacée with macarons

Top: Candied oranges dipped in milk chocolate, creamed chesnuts, fruit pastilles; Right: Mendiants; Russian Tea Cakes (both made by me!); Left: Macarons;
