Fantasy: Neil Perry merrily sends out festive food from your kitchen. You mingle graciously with a serene smile, leaving in your wake charmed guests and the barest hint of eau de Cartier.
Reality: Everyone savours an incredible feast that the host made from scratch after slogging for 5 days. By 25 December, all the host wants for Christmas is a Bex, a lie-down, and something to neutralise that eau de turkey.
So, in the name of emancipating all home-kitchen slaves, this Christmas food safari article will show you how to assemble a fuss-free feast with the best offerings from Strathfield’s providores.
For the complete article, see A Christmas food safari in Strathfield that I wrote for The Strathfield Scene. (After clicking on the link, magnify your screen to make the words more readable.)
Have a wonderful festive season, and a year of good health, success and happiness!
