Christmas Dinner Enjoyed

There is no joy like the joy of connecting and sharing, making magical memories with friends.

The Dinner Begins

Of course when the friends are superb cooks who follow the French Rule of Holiday meals…you get to eat truly magnificently.

I dont know how I got so lucky, but I enjoy every morsel, every crumb of taste and feel.

This year we dined at my friend Corinne’s house on Foie Gras, Oysters with shallot sauce,  Lobster ala Americaine, Scallop & Salmon Quenelle,

Mushrooms & Carrots, Salad, Cheese & 2 types of Bouche.

accompanied by appropriate wines.   Much laughter munching plus photo and videoing!

So what is your favorite part of year end holidays?  I would love to hear, comment below.

I love pulling decorations and food together for friend and family gatherings. Especially when I am not the cook but a helper.  I take charge of decorations, creating a little magic and warmth with color and candlelight.   The memories linger for a long time.

The feast is for all the senses

If you are looking for a home that makes you feel like royalty, give me a call, I can help you make you dream home the one you live in now…. Jennifer Duchene 650.644.8592

  2. Sounds like a lovely occasion – if you like seafood! I love how you describe it though – and I would have loved the cheese 😉

  3. I think I definitely lived in France in prior lives. That meal was like coming home. And therefore, I’ll expect an invitation next time you have a get together…..
