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.

An entire book on perry pears?
I’m not keen on muffins as they usually have an overpowering taste of baking powder, and ingredient I avoid like the plague.
By the way, quince liqueur poured over creme brulee works a treat. My Gran used to drown it in Benadictine which didn’t work.
Made the whole thing taste like a cough lolly.

No. It's a Lukanka. It's Bulgarian. Wursts and other salamis taste like shit compared to Lukanka. It's so different. Like comparing a Tesla, to a cricket bat.

We also have File Elena. Again Bulgarian. Filetto di Eléna

Don't matter. Grab some more Lukanka:

Goes great with beer, whiskey, water, airyan, even Coca-Cola, if you believe me. All Bulgarian pizzas have lukankas. And it's great. No real Bulgarian pizza lacks lukanka. You can't find that anywhere in the world. I didn't see that in Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Russia, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia or Austria. And I've been to all these places.

This is the real salami. Lukanka is so much better than other foods. You must try it.

Had to take Mum to an op shop. Fun, not. However, after casting a not-very-hopeful glance at the bric a brac shelved (no Diana dinner plates, fukkit!) I had a look at the book shelves, again with a not overly optimistic eye. Found two great little cookbooks! Yeah!

Breakfasts

Afternoon teas.


The last book I almost put back as a bit of a gay wank but $1.50, nothing to lose. Now, I an NOT going to cut fucking sandwiches into heart shapes but there are some bloody good recipes and ideas! Even a couple of recipes with lavender: I will have plenty growing in my garden to provide diversity to my fruit trees, why not the odd lavender cake? There was a book on lavender, but I put it back on the shelf, not THAT into lavender!

Both books were a massive MASSIVE $1.50 each.

Also a Mrs Beeton “Easy Entertaining.

$11 for 3 fantastic cookbooks!

Didn’t find “Muffins and teacakes” dammit!

My family loves green bean bundles when we get together for the holidays. It's bacon, wrapped around green beans, and dipped in a buttery brown sugar mix before baking. It has to be bad for you, because it tastes like bacon dipped in maple syrup.

My mom takes bread dough and rolls it out. She puts meat, onions, peppers, and whatever you want on it. She folds it over to make a pocket and drizzles butter on it and bakes the bread. It's good for brown bag lunches and easy to handle.

I wrap pancetta around stalks of asparagus, bake at 180°C for 15 minutes. Heavenly—the asparagus is still crisp and goes well with the pancetta.

You can use thin rashers of bacon or ham or prosciutto I suppose.

Who the fuck wants Lukanka anyway? If i want salami I'll eat real salami.

There's a reason Italians are famous for salami and Bulgarians are not :roll
