It has been a while since I posted any of my cooking, so I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you what our family was feasting on Christmas Eve. For many years now, Christmas Eve to me has meant cooking up a wonderful feast for my family and spend hours enjoying it with a couple of glasses of wine, and this year was no exception. With careful planning in advance I made it easy and straightforward, and everything was a hit with everyone's tummy. Enjoy :)
Smoked Salmon Terrine and Baked Camembert
The smoked salmon was served with capers and thinly sliced apple.
This was served with the Baked Le Rustique Camembert, the strong garlic flavour goes very well with the cheese.
Acompanied Wine: Pegasus Bay Bel Canto (Dry Riesling) 2010. This is a newly released dry Riesling which I find matching very well with seafood and cheese, it just takes off the oiliness of the fatty salmon and the creaminess Camembert, leaving your palette nice and refresh.
Acompanied Wine: Rockburn Pinot Noir 2010. The pinot noir from Rockburn has always been my favourite, although the 2010 vintage is delicious, but I find the 2007 and 2008 much better. It is quite a fruity pinot noir and goes very well with the duck.
Served with chilled Creme Anglaise. I made my praline with macadamia nuts and it was delicious.
