James’s Christmas Menus


It should be a Christmas of 2 halves this year. With the vegetarian MIL around for Chrismas day, I’ve decided that just for once I won’t be cooking something special just for her. Instead it will be vegetarian all round. To prepare for this, we felt that a meat fest was in order, so our ‘alternative’ ‘alternative’ christmas will be on Christmas eve. After I compiled the original menus, I had a sudden realisation that I would have probably died of a heart attack or significant cholesterol poisoning by new year, so the first menu was subsequently scaled back!
