Christmas in Edinburgh

We went right back to our traditional favourites this year, after an antipodean reprise in 2011. Starters were blinis with cream cheese and smoked salmon, served with champagne, OF COURSE. (How fun were the middle-class jokes about serving blinis with bellinis...) Then straight into the main event: luscious roasted potatoes, Nigella's decadent sprouts with bacon, perfectly crisp and sweet roast parnsips, a huge Swiss chard gratin, and of course a MASSIVE turducken, with cranberry sauce to go with.

Followed up by a brandy-soaked Christmas pud:

 I was given an amazing new lens for Christmas, a pancake (wide-aperature) perfect for low light conditions and food photography (thanks, Santa!!). So from this post onward, the photos should hopefully look even more delectable than before.
