A few days ago, I went my friend, F's place to cook for a Christmas Party. I was reasonably tired after spending the whole morning at ISCAHM (which I still think is AWESOME.) We cooked a whole mod podge of different things, and I enjoyed myself a lot. By the way, F finished Diploma of Culinary Arts and Kitchen Management in ISCAHM. So I learned a quite a bit from him.
|Moroccan Lamb Tagine.|
It was cooked for at least 12 hours.
|Beautifully deep fried paprika spiced fish.|
|Silky Smooth Hummus|
|Stuffed and Trussed Chicken with Cous Cous Stuffing|
My favorite thing would probably be the cous cous stuffed chicken. It delivered a lot of flavor cause the cous cous had dried fruit and nuts even though it might sound a little weird and a little out of your league. The chicken remained really succulent and moist. I definitely had to do with the basting of butter over and over again.
|Paella with Artichoke Hearts, Mussles, Squid, Prawns and OTHER THINGS.|
The paella was packed with flavor. There were a lot of ingredients. I bet y'all I couldn't even remember each and every one of them! They came together in such an epic harmony. We were extremely generous with the saffron so the rice was amazingly fragrant with the scent.
|Cuerva's Mango Torte|
|Apple pie with the best crumble topping ever.|
|The caroling children|
So dear readers, tell me, what do your Christmas parties look like?
