Maggiecoops, I had to start a new threads to talk to you about this thread you sent me from chocoholics.
Holy Moly, I’ve never been to a feast like you described in that thread. I’ve never seen 70% cocoa oil chocolate. What was the recipe? Never heard of chocolate sponges w/ganache inside or coffee sauce.
Did you do all of that cooking alone? I’m afraid to hear the answer. It reminds me of the Food Network Thanksgiving & Christmas Shows about what people are cooking all round the world. I just drool and dream. What on earth is baked, broiled Gammon. Never heard of it. I’m drooling at the thought of this feast. And I’ve always wanted to taste Plum Pudding since I was a kid and read the Christmas stories of Plum Pudding. I want to try the turkey, chicken, duck thing or something like that all rolled up in one. And I’ve Never had poached Salmon, or pressed chicken. One day I’m going to travel and eat, travel and eat, travel and eat. What are some of the other traditional holiday feast out there? Did you make all of your own decorations, and are there tableclothes, runners, and placemats handed down through the generations?
I had to look up Gammon and found out that it’s ham leg cooked with cider, sounds wonderful.
