When we started dreaming about Christmas dinners with Chris and Kirsty we realised we were all longing for completely different styles of food! What is sure is that we all love food and we thought it'd be fun to share our Christmas menus with you all :)
Kirsty is from London, and spends Christmas with her parents: 'Our Christmas menu is really British, we first start with having a few Mimosa cocktails while we wait for the meal to finish baking! And it starts, we have the roast turkey, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, Brussel sprouts, Pigs in Blankets, homemade cranberry sauce.... and for dessert we have my mum's home made delicious Christmas pudding! So much joy in one meal!'
Chris is from London but his family is from Hong Kong: 'Christmas dinner at home is great when the whole family comes around as we have a Chinese hot pot. This consists of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. we usually have a mix of food such as: veg, seafood, several types of bean curd, different finely cut meats and dumplings. What I love is that everyone has to huddle around as everybody is adding food to the hot pot. Be prepared though, you're likely to end up eating loads without realising until late into the evening! For dessert we always have a box of Fortune Cookies!'
Cléo is from Paris and that's where she spends most of her Christmas: 'We are very lucky in France because we celebrate Christmas twice! Once on Christmas eve where the menu consists mainly of homemade foie gras canapés as a starter and seafood as a main: delicious oysters, gravlax salmon, prawns etc... it is usually served with a nice potato salad and followed by cheese and a christmas log. But then comes Christmas day and we also have a roasted turkey served with chestnuts followed by cheese and a dessert too.'
