What a spread! I'm especially tempted by those mushrooms.

What's a chiplolata?

Angela Brown said...

It all looks so yummy!

Stacy McKitrick said...

Fancy! :)

Sarah Ahiers said...

I want to eat all of this

Darke Conteur said...

Yummy! Yes, what is a chiplotata?

Mike Keyton said...

Maria, those mushrooms are Yorkshire puddings, but now you've made me discontent that I didn't have mushrooms as well. Next year perhaps. Chipolata is a baby sausage or cocktail sausage. When wrapped in bacon they're called pigs in blankets.

Angela -Stacey, it was quite tasty but the 'fancy' bit lasted less than a minute. And I forgot the wine. The wine was great!

Mike Keyton said...

Sarah thank you. I look at it now and groan. I'm sated. Maybe in a weeks time my appetite will return 😄

Diane Carlisle said...

Sadly, we did not get any dessert. Your pudding and brandy cream sound lovely! :)

Maria Zannini said...

That's Yorkshire pudding?! I had no idea that's what it looked like.

You realize you'll have to cook at least one meal if you come to visit us. :)

Mike Keyton said...

Maria, it would be a pleasure, but I'm telling you, I think you're every bit as good a cook as I am - maybe better.

Mike Keyton said...

Diane, it was lovely but put you into a deep sleep afterwards.

And Maria, I've just been told my comment sounded patronising which was far from my intent. I should of course have said 'probably better' I'm a very lazy cook who cuts too many corners. Now, if you ever came across my very good friend Mike Adams who cooked for the Rothschilds and the Duke of Blenheim, there is a cook! Funny we started off at the very same catering college all those years ago.

Mmm everything looks delicious!

WOW! That table setting looks delicious. Hope you had a wonderful holiday season and I wish you a great year. I haven't been blogging because I am on vacation. I hope I get the time and energy to blog a bit more in 2015 ;-)

Viewing this post is definitely at odds with my New Year's resolution to lose weight.

Mike Keyton said...

Claudia, thank you. And if I had a choice between blogging and a vacation, I know what I'd choose. Good luck for 2015

Linda, it's too late for me. I'm 10lb over and as a result am walking everywhere more briskly :)
