Be it Chinese New Year, Christmas, birthdays or retirement, any pretence can be the occasion to move those tables and chairs, bring in flavourful food, open a few bottles of delicious wine. And enjoy the chatter. In a chilled atmosphere.
Selection of cold cuts, French cheese platter from a highly reputable cheesemonger in Lyon, a selection of salmons (smoked, marinated or in terrine), crunchy vegetables and scrumptious dips. And of course, bread. Finished off with mini lemon tarts and mini chocolate fondants, to quench that sweet tooth.
All make for an easily set up and savoury moment.
