Christmas Dinner 2016

Christmas is less than two weeks away and if you haven’t planned your Christmas Dinner here is a suggestion that will knock your Reindeer Socks off. Much of this dinner can be made a day in advance and finished on Christmas Day just before dinner. I strongly suggest doing as much as possible in advance. The duck recipe is for the food adventurous and it is best to do it the day before if you have not done duck in the past.

This is a multi-course dinner so the portions can be smaller than usual. A cup of soup on a cold Christmas Day is satisfying and soul warming. A small plate of salad cleanses the palette and a quarter portion of duck is more than enough to fill up even those with the heartiest of appetites. Besides, it’s always good to leave room for dessert.
