I think I need to go on a diet or something. After a hearty lunch on Christmas Eve, we had another hearty dinner on Christmas day. Sirloin steaks covered in black pepper and mushroom sauce, goose fat roasted potatoes and purple sprouting broccoli. No turkey for us! Hope your Christmas lunch/dinner was also good!

I have to share this amazing torró, one of two, from my friend who brought it over on Christmas Eve. While traditional torró is based on almonds, these were mainly chocolate and the one pictured below was filled with ganache with cava and little cubes of fruity jelly. Amazing! If you’re interested, they were from La Rosa de Jericó in Valencia.
