Winter Dinner

Sometimes, when winter gets so boring you think your head might explode, you just need to have a party.

Sadly, taking a picture of the table was as far as I got with the photography thing

duck dinner table

It was a lovely evening. Delicious food, delicious wine, amazing friends. We had green salad with spiced candied walnuts, pears and chevre (alas, my plan to do Salade Lyonnaise, the very French frissee salad with lardon and poached egg, was foiled due to not being able to find any frissee this time of year), local duck two ways, a cheese course of Stilton (paired with a delicious port, of course) and molten chocolate cakes for dessert. Comfort food at it's rich, wintery best.

Cook on, friends, cook on.
I'm off to order my garden seeds and dream about Spring while I listen to the snow melt.

Happy Valentines Day!
