Last night was party night at Chez Fitz, lots of fun and games and as usual too much to eat and drink.
This year we started with Peach Fizz (50/50 Cava and peach nectar) served with cheese sables, smoked salmon and assorted cured meats. These were then joined by an assortment of 'bread shots' (very small rolls made with smoked wholemeal malted flour) which had a variety of fillings (cheese, walnut & pesto, sun-dried tomato and olive). I then wheeled in an assortment of filled savoury pancakes (ricotta, parmasan & spinach and smoked salmon & sour cream). Finally a tray of baked mushrooms stuffed with stilton and a variety of cocktail sausages filled in the gaps before a slightly disappointing lemon ricotta tart (slightly undercooked almond pastry base) was served for pudding.
Of course this was all washed down with copious amounts of mulled wine!
