I think of:
- Christmas sweets: marzipan, kulkuls, date rolls and milk-cream all painstakingly crafted after hours of tricep-building stirring.
So this year, I decided to give marzipan a crack. I also tried my hand at date rolls, dal sweet and X’mas cookies, but, let’s face it, the piece de resistance was always going to be the marzipan. I’m quite chuffed with the fruits of my labour:
- Christmas cake: warm and spicy, bursting with sultanas and dried fruit that have been plumped up in brandy for over a month.
- Christmas lunch: there HAS to be roast chicken with stuffing and trifle for dessert. I’m not fussed if there’s no glazed ham and, confession time, I’ve NEVER tasted turkey!
Fingers crossed, we’re going to have at least one of these festive foods this Christmas...
So tell me, what food springs to mind when you think of Christmas?
And what’s on your Christmas menu this year?
