The Christmas blog post roundup

christmas lunch veg

You’ve seen my traditional Christmas lunch. What did the other food bloggers do? Not everyone has posted yet (cough, Helen, yes I am looking at you ;-), but I thought it might be nice to do a roundup.

Su-Lin, at Tamarind & Thyme, had a porky Christmas, dishing up slow roasted pork belly with fennel, chorizo & potato croquettes and lemon and passion fruit roulade, amongst other wonderful things.

Aidan Brooks had a wonderful Christmas lunch. Thai scallops to start, followed by roast goose with goose-fat roast potatoes, roast carrots, truffled Brussels sprouts, puréed parsnip, stuffing and gravy made from the goose giblets and roasting juices. Followed by Christmas pudding made in October. And yes, they’re his words from a comment he made here. Thanks Aidan! Truffled brussel sprouts sound wonderfully decadent.

Lizzie, over at Hollow Legs, had roast goose and gravadlax. Board games and Guinness too. Sounds perfect!

Fred and Ginger, at Dinner Diary, had roast goose, and made roast goose pie with the leftovers. I’d like some of that pie right now!

Chris, at Cheese & Biscuits, didn’t tell us about his Christmas lunch, but he did tell us about his reservation for El Bulli. Lucky him! I look forward to reading about it. I’m not jealous at all, really. Not even one little bit. Really.




  1. Ha ha!!! Yes, I do need to get around to it although I have set aside today for catching up on blog writing and reading!! You’ll be glad to know I stuffed myself silly though as usual and yours dinner looks delicious too :)

  2. I’m not jealous of that El Bulli reservation either. At all. I mean, molecular gastronomy – it’s just so last year, isn’t it, really?!

    Have a great 2009!

  3. @marmitelover – I thoroughly enjoyed, thanks for the link!

    @Helen – I have so much catching up to do! The blog guilt is crippling.

    @aforkfulofspaghetti – El Bulli! Pfh. :-) Thanks & have a great year too.

Over to you! Your comments - I would love to hear from you :)
