Christmas Brunch

Christmas Brunch Menu

  • Poached egg, prosciutto, asparagus, curly endive salad with red wine vinaigrette
  • English muffin with sour cream, smoked salmon, fresh dill
  • Greek yogurt bar with cinnamon, honey, persimmon, pistachio, dried cranberry, crystallized ginger
  • Toasted panettone (Italian holiday bread/fruitcake)
  • Coffee!!!

Everyone loved the DIY fun of the Christmas yogurt bar with yogurt toppings in Apilco ramekins on a Japanese lacquerware tray.

And the fragrant toasted panettone served in a Spode Christmas Tree fluted tart pan added a sweet touch to the tabletop.

The kids waited ever so patiently for brunch to finish before opening presents.  Santa had filled everyone’s stockings and left Teddy & Lucy a special present each.  It appears that he’s a bit of a megalomaniac, what with wrapping the gifts in paper featuring Old Nick himself!
