Christmas Dinner

My friend and I went shopping for the perfect turkey at the market.

Our perfect bird all dressed up, weiging a bit over 5KG.
Our perfect Christmas dinner with a few friends with the essential dishes.
I love bacon. I can't help it. I decided to put it in eveything.
Home made mulled wine. All it takes is a few key ingredients: orange slices, sugar, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and of course the wine.

Office Christmas Soirée

One of my creations using grapefruite juice, cava and vodka. We didn't have enough flute glasses so this will do.
Star platter of  nuts and sorts.
One of my favourites but not because of the tast but because of the shape.
Tarta de Turrón. Not home made but just as good.
A very simple green salad missing one key garnish...
I absolutely love the glasses these were served in.
An assortment of appetizers from our office Christmas soirée. Small portions but rich flavours.
Our office competed to make the best gingerbread house and of course my team won!

Chocolate Nut Pistachio

This is a creation of a friend of mine. This is a creation of a friend of mine. The base is actually a chocolate nut bar topped with pistachio ice cream and berries.

wild mushroom + lemon poppyseed pistachio

People only tend to be served alcohol in a shot class. Why not create a mini appetizer?

I took the the lemon poppyseed recipe and added my own twist to it. I added some ground pistachios and some dried cranberries. You can make this recipe as a cake but I always opt to bake them in a muffin tray for ease.

Sleepy Old Man @ Starbucks

Is this the cutest thing or what? When I grow old I want to be just like him. I couldn't help but notice his two mobile phones. Clearly the coffee had no effect on him whatsoever.
