Hmm doesn't float my boat. Although it does seem to have a theme more closely suited to the location where the bible story took place

 

My preferred menu would be:

 

Entree - Rudolphs' cojones on a silver platter

Main - Santa roasted over hot coals until burnt black

Dessert - Christmas pudding shaped bomb for hurling at 'jolly' Christmas folks

 

and finally - Good coffee and some HUMBUGS!!!!

 

Heading towards this Christmas can anyone tell I am skint and bitter? or do I hide it too well :D

Nice to see someone embracing their inner scrooge so early in the season. :D I'm with you on that, as for the meal, it sounds a bit spendy when I convert that to local currency but if I was quoted that in NZ$, I'd think it was reasonable value. In my experience, you guys spend £ about as quick as we spend $.

OHH NO not that time of the year again, Bah Humbug.

 

Another day stood in front of a hot stove.

 

Roast Turkey, Roast Lamb (as SWIMBO dont like Turkey),

Roast potatoes, mashed potatoes,

brussels, cabbage, carrots, roast parsnips,

stuffing balls and yorkshire puddings, topped with lashings of gravy and cranberry sauce.

 

To then sit down and devour with the help of three very appreciative dogs, 9, 7 years &  a 6 month old puppy (he's never seen a christmas tree, heaven help us LOL)

 

A nice bottle of wine to wash it down with.

 

Christmas done and dusted.

Well, you can always come to the Czech Republic and indulge in the traditional Christmas meal of carp and potato salad if your local fare isn't appealing to you...

"A nice bottle of  ..."  err .... bottle ?

 

I find the trauma of Christmas can be eased by several bottles of wine,  together with assorted sniffers of sherry, prosecco, single malt and brandy.

 

Not all at the same time of course, spread throughout the day, starting by nicking Santa's sherry before breakfast. Hey, Santa's driving, he can't drink!

I came here to have a moan at you being an old Scrooge, but having seen the menu, it's a hard pass from me too :puke:

Not my idea of a Christmas menu, but hey, different strokes and all that.  I suspect that SWMBO and myself will be invited to our daughters for Christmas dinner, so it will be strictly traditional, none of yer fancy foreign stuff!

In my work days, this was something I had to cost out on a regular basis and I agree that it seems a tad expensive for work menu. Your Chef must be working to a high margin to be charging that sort of price.

It would be interesting to know what area of business you are working in and whether the catering facilities are in-house or contracted out.

In all my working days I have never actually attended a works Christmas dinner or Christmas party. Never felt the urge to fraternize with work colleagues.

That's not a menu. It's passive-aggression in edible form....

I am quite partial to a curry and a kebab, just not both together; and certainly not a Christmass.
