12/20/06: A Christmas Down Under

My dear, dear, dear friend lives in Australia, and I must say that she's a bit of a gourmet. She e-mailed me their traditional Australian Christmas Dinner menu.

Since it tends to be especially hot in the Land Down Under on Christmas, grilling is the usual thing to do:

Christmas Menu:

Mediterranean Antipasto:
--Prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and rockmelon
--Feta and sun-dried tomatoes
--Baby chili bocconcini
--Pepper spears
Australian Gourmet Cheeses and Bickies

Main Event:

--King Tiger Prawns
--Grilled Octopus
--Tasmanian salmon steaks
--Organic Lamb and Rosemary Sausages
--Organic Lamb Backstraps
--Mango-apricot chicken

Grilled Vegetable and Couscous salad (hot)
Roasted Pumpkin and Chickpea salad (cold)

Christmas pudding (tropical fruit and macademia) with brandy sauce and
Mini-pavlovas and fruit tarts

Sparkling juices
Hard dry ciders
