Things I say I will make for every Christmas and then don't but this year will surely be the exception!
1. Gingerbread House
2. Buche de Noel
3. Fruit Mince Pies
5. A buffet table loaded down with the things I like - seafood, assorted veg dishes and dessert.
6. A truly epic edible centerpiece. Like trees constructed out of truffles or those chewy lolly leaves. Because you totally need something to wheel out with coffee after lunch.
7. A bunch of people who will come to lunch and tell me how a) fabulous I am, b) pretend I'm witty and laugh at all my jokes and c) tell me how wonderful my food is a la Nigella. Oh and d) be impressed by awesome hat, I need a really big hat.
Quick question how often have you seen someone at one of Nigella's dinners more than once? Do they just grab people off the street? Hire extras?
