Merry Christmas, one and all! I hope you’re with loved ones (I’m missing my father who’s on the other side of the world but thank goodness for telephones) and even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you’re enjoying the few days off!

Christmas Eve Lunch

We had Christmas dinner a day early, when there’s still public transport in London, with a friend who was able to make it over. Catalan chicken, fried potatoes, cavolo nero, chipolatas wrapped in bacon, and amazing turró from Valencia for dessert…my stomach is going to explode!
