Christmas Meal of the West

Table set
Wines chilled

An excuse to use the owl napkin rings we bought in Bali

Candles lit

My sister in law just returned from Paris & she brought us a whole bunch of goodies - saucisson, foie gras, escargots...bless her !

Now we just have to wait for our guests to arrive. I'm a bad assistant cos I forgot to take a photo of the first course. Japanese tomatoes served with soba & enoki mushrooms in a ginger vinaigrette sauce.

Eggplant stuffed with salmon remoulade &
topped with crispy salmon skin

Red snapper with asparagus over a creamy spinach sauce

Main course - The duck special (from left)
Foie gras on toast, poached pear, pan fried foie gras with blueberry sauce & magret de canard
This dish alone used up my calorie intake for a month

I didn't manage to get a good picture of the dessert but it was a white chocolate mousse with strawberry sauce.
Sharing the meal with our closest & dearest friends

Thank you. Happy new year. I had nothing to do with the food except to eat it, of course.
