New Year's Eve Food Exploits

We started our feast at 1pm with Champagne and salmon canap├ęs with caviar...

For second course at around 3pm, we had puff pastry filled with cream cheese, onions, garlic and fresh garden herbs...


At about 5pm, we started with the next course...pure potato pleasure.

Put it in the oven for about 45 Minutes:

For the night's main course, we then took really thinly cut slices of pork.
On those we spread some fresh Italian herbs and put  a slice of Serrano ham on each one. Top it off with some mozarelly cheese and roll it into a roulade.

 Sear shortly in a pan and then put it in the oven and allow to simmer for ten more minutes.

Meanwhile, get the saffron risotto ready and serve :)


So...Happy New Year everyone!
