Email me a post office box number or name a post office & I’ll send you a bottle. You haven’t time to make quince liqueur properly between now and december. The commercially available stuff,especially that from Japan, is overpriced crap.

Happy to have white wine all the way through, that can be chilled and it is a poultry–heavy menu anyway.

I’d go with the rosé all the way and finish with a choice of some of your best apple cider (if not too dry) & a sweet desert wine of some kind. Or you can add a dash of quince liqueur to the apple cider. Don’t cringe, it really works.

Yeah, overloaded, but only the first draught.

Duck terrine on slices baguette might make a nice entree. Plain chilled soup before or after entree.

Have roughed out a menu:

Entree
Curried duck or some Thai “moneybags” stuffed with duck, prawn etc.

Soup
Cold soup, flavored with duck meat

Red wine
Chilled rosé

Pasta
Home made pasta with duck eggs

Salad
Warm duck salad

Roast
Fried duck breast with blueberries
Truffle and mushroom risotto

Desert wine, botrytis riesling
Desert
Icecream and mango
Fresh seasonal fruit

Coffee
Port
or
Muscat
muscatels


Might be overdoing the duck.

Like the entree to feature duck, maybe the chilled (be bloody hot I am thinking Christmass) soup needs only duck stuck or not have duck at all.

Sure is overloaded with duck. Maybe you’ve got a back yard overoaded with them and want to reduce the numbers?

Rosé by the way isn’t a red wine or did you mean Rosé AND a red wine?

I wouldn’t bother with the duck & or prawn ‘moneybags’ if you’re having pasta later on. Australian prawns, shelled and de-veined and quickly sautéd with garlic & ginger, served on sliced cos lettuce with a lime wedge on the side would be a better bet. Given the rest of your menu I’d limit the number of (largish) prawns to three per person.

Ice-cream and mango is better on a hot SA Christmas Day than plum pudding with brandy butter. How about giving it a lift though with something like a splash of quince liqueur? Let me know if you decide to go with that & I’ll send you some of my home brew.
Home made pasta with duck eggs sounds great depending on how you treat the duck eggs. I’d whisk them with a little cream chopped italian parsly, fresh tarragon and duck liver paté (bought) warmed gently and folded into the pasta at the last minute. Decorate with a few small chunks of the paté and more of the chopped parsley.
I’d make the pasta the first coarse followed by the soup which to compete with the Thai curried duck &/or prawns should be in the style of Vietnamse Duck Pho (made the day before!) or similar. A smallish bowl would be enough.

I wouldn’t have muscat and muscatels - too similar. Muscat and cherries if you can get them this year would be a better combination.
As to the Rosé I’d go to the effort and expense of the best Rosé in Australia from THREE WILLOWS which just happens to come from near my place in Nth Tas.

Very stupid. It's a Turkish word -- yoğurt. We can bet €50 if you'd like. Bulgaria was at the time part of the Ottoman Empire. So they ate our milk and called it yogurt. Nothing to do with India.

No, I escaped that but was exposed to enough of Rome’s doings behind the scenes when studying the pipe organ for 11 years at a Catholic cathedral.
