Wow, that sounds soooooo good. I need to start pulling together a menu - want to cook a nice dinner for the evening of Jan 1 when Soren gets home from Japan. I promised him maple syrup creme brulee. Gotta figure out what first and second courses would nicely compliment that ... hmm

Ooh.. goat cheese cheesecake. What form of goat chese did you use? :)

Laura Chenel. You want something pretty mild for this one. It also has mascarpone and regular cream cheese in it.

Though I did have a humboldt fog cheesecake at Azie on Christmas Eve that makes me want to try something more adventurous...

Merry Christmas to all Borogoves!

As the topic seems to be a "feast list", this was ours:

Roast tomato and pesto tartlets
Thai chicken and julienne vegetable "spoonlets"
Watermelon, mint and feta salad

Slow-roasted pork with garlic and rosemary
Rare roast beef, rubbed with cumin, garam masala and thyme
Slow-roasted duck with orange and star anise
Castlemaine ham

West Australian lobster
King prawns

Rice salad: black wild rice and red wild rice
Couscous, chickpea, tomato, Spanish onion and basil salad
Rocket, parmesan and roasted pear salad

Christmas pudding (with no peel, as requested)
Nigella Lawson's double-double-chocolate flan


This was a GREAT 10-person estended family feast!

Season's Greetings, meriko!
