Rather than trying to cook at home, we went out for brunch on Christmas day. We specifically chose a venue that was not geared to entertaining children.
I had intended this to be a food blog, with a photo of each course as before I ate it, followed by a commentary, however after two courses I forgot to take the photo before I’d started, so all I will show is the first and second courses.
I worked my way though a large proportion of the menu, including traditional turkey, after steak, lamb chops and lobster, followed by a selection of deserts… all washed down with white wine.
Around 2pm, hotel staff came out and performed Christmas carols and songs.
At 3pm, Father Christmas came out and gave small gifts to the few children who were at the brunch.
We ate outdoors. The day was warm and sunny. Our views looked across the water to West Bay. We finished eating at 4pm and took a taxi home.
