Forking Christmas Dinner *MUM’S KITCHEN REVIEW*

This review could really land me in hot water, but as my mother knows…. my reviews are always forking honest!

Let’s ease our way into the hot water with the table presentation. Nice to see a table cloth that isn’t made of paper I must say! Don’t get me wrong, many of my favourite restaurants in Spain serve on paper though! The crackers and napkins matched the decor nicely (if you ever saw how my mother dressed me as a child you would know that she’s massively progressed on the matching front!!!) I loved the lanterns, if you’re looking to purchase, they are from that very exclusive shop called ‘El Chino’ I have to hand it to my parents; I was impressed!

Here’s David Bailey’s sorry Angela King’s picture of the table 😂

We move on to the beverages. Nice little set up that I can only imagine my father has put together! You can tell our family were publicans with that ice bucket! I was however under the weather and didn’t really sample many of his offerings (he would have added them to my tab of course!) The champagne was flowing, there were copious amounts of Chablis for me and they like to drink what they call the ‘fish wine’ from Mercadona! There wasn’t an empty glass all day… another reason to love my parents…. they can throw a party! ❤️

So it’s time to talk to food. I made sure I wrote this part away from my knife holding mother! my mum laid out a complete feast and absolutely smashed it. What a woman!

Our table consisted of:

  • Turkey
  • Gammon
  • Pigs in Blankets
  • Roast Potatoes
  • Yorkshire Puddings
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Parsnips
  • Swede
  • Carrots
  • Peas
  • Gravy, bread and cranberry sauce

*nb- my father would like me to point out- no boiled onion!

A special mention to my uncle Carl- that was some turkey you cooked. I won’t divulge your secret but it was so MOIST!!! (That one is for you Pinot!) The desserts were shop bought so I didn’t take pictures and we devoured the cheese board later on in the evening!

It was great to spend some quality time with my lovely family and just relax (well we did, whilst poor mum slaved away!) Mum you’re the best Roast dinner cook I know, thank you for an amazing day.
