Merry Christmas "Elliott" Style

Christmas Day came around and we finally got to our first Elliott Christmas feast - with the wine to match (Elliott Semillon from Glandore Estate in the Hunter Valley!) And what a feast it was. We had a very relaxed afternoon drinking Pimms, playing games, chatting, handing around delicious canapés and preparing dinner. Sitting down to eat the magnificent spread was fabulous, with lots of wine and champers flowing shared with friends and family and of course delicious tasty food!

The menu:
3 canapés - Double Smoked Salmon Mousse served in individual shot glasses with Grissini Sticks; Proscuitto and Basil wrapped Marinated Bocconcini and Oysters with Tetsuya's Oyster Vinagrette.
The main event - Poached Turkey and Prawn Salad, Maple Glazed Ham, Dad's Gravadlax (whole fresh salmon marinated in Filipino Tanduay Rum, Brown Sugar, Lemon and Dill), Jamie Oliver's Yummy Dressed Potatoes and Green Salad.
Dessert - Tropical Mango Pudding with Mango Ice Cream and fresh Mango.
