Eat, Drink, and Be Merry
Food is a big part of many holiday gatherings. One member of our team enlists the help of a trained chef to make it extra special!
"Christmas was a sad day for my husband after his mother passed away, so we began a tradition of spending the day with close friends – one of whom is a trained chef. We work out a fabulous menu jointly and share all the costs. We have been known to consume an assortment of caviars with champagne or spiced nuts with eggnog, standing rib roast or rack of lamb, four-cheese potatoes or soufflés, fabulous vegetables and salads, decadent desserts and cheeses, and lots of great wine. They arrive in the late morning or early afternoon and we carry on until late at night, with one wonderful course after another. There's a fire in the fireplace, good music, and a nicely decorated tree, of course. Christmas is now a major epicurean event, which is almost better than opening presents."
