Christmas food!! lots and lots more.

So here are all the lovely photos of my Christmas feast…

I started with the blinis making, made the batter and here is the set up to fry them…

 

 

look at theses, it’s so much fun making them. I really recommend trying to make it. All the recipes are from the books I mentioned in my previous post on Christmas cooking.

 

having tea and frying up some blinis nonchalantly..

 

leaving them to cool, I moved on to the Chocolate cake… god I thought that cake would never end, it’s quite long to produce.

 

so first you melt the chocolate au bain marie so it doesn’t burn… and then let it cool.

 

I then moved onto mixing the flour baking powder, sugar, sunflower spread blah blah blah… that took a while and was quite boring so much so, look to what happen to my company…

 

 

My mom wasn’t feeling so great so she went to lie down a little and my step-father, Sebastien was my assistant in the kitchen. However he kinda fell asleep on his chair in the kitchen by the Dyson…

Anyway he was a lot more helpful later on with the washing up and peeling potatoes for the roast.

 

Here is the cake out of the oven. I let it cool down a bit and put it on its own dish.

I moved on to the icing…

 

mixing away the chocolate icing and soon it will be ready to dollop onto the cake…

 

delicious hum… actually there is still some left, although that doesn’t mean it wasn’t nice everyone liked it, it’s just too much fooood…

While all of this was happening, the beef rib was roasting away with the potatoes…

 

 

Look at that! We ate it all, it was the best piece of beef I ever had…

 

by around 5pm or so mum felt better so she entered the action in blinis dressing..

 

Much more appetizing non?

So the cake is finally ready and beautiful!

So then the only thing left to make is the smoked salmon tartelette.

With puff pastry here I put the mix in.

Voila 10 minutes later here it is all cooked and ready!

 

A close up on the beautiful tartelette seating on the table, ready to be eaten…

 

Hum and to that was added Champagne of course. We all had a wonderful Christmas eve diner and opened our presents before desert.

On Christmas morning I made some scones for breakfast and at lunch we had left over as usual, now nothing is left…

 

I hope you all had wonderful Christmas diner and beautiful presents…
