Christmas dinner

A proper English Christmas

Merry Christmas all!

Christmas in the Bailey household, is about one bird and one bird alone: turkey.

And most importantly, making what can be a bland tasteless bird, as incredible as possible.

Turkey dinner

Our souped up Christmas dinner includes a turkey stuffing roll (a la Tom Kerridge), goose fat roasties, parsnips, carrots, sprout tops, chipolatas wrapped in bacon, cranberry and bread sauce.  PHEW! I’m surprised I can even type after eating all that.

Our wine switched between the Bouchard Pere & Fils Genevrieres, Meursault Premier Cru and the Calera Pinot Noir. Whilst I expected the Pinot to work best, the Meursault trumped it.

Mince pies & Christmas pudding drowned in brandy sauce still to come…

Whereever you are this year, and whatever you are eating and drinking, I wish you a good one.
