Xmas Eve Dinner

I’m having the family around for a Xmas Eve Barbecue. The menu is looking like this:

Grazing Platter

  • Boursin style cheese (Made myself!)
  • Kirima (A camembert style cheese)
  • Kikorangi (Gorgonzola, by another name)
  • Muscat raisins
  • Dried mango
  • Dried cranberries
  • Cherries (Gorgeous, gorgeous red cherries. They commanded to be bought)
  • Macadamias
  • Cashews
  • Crackers
  • Baguettes

Then, for the main event..
Manuka smoked salmon (Cured with citrus)
Grilled mixed vegetables (Red onion, capsicum, broccoli)
Asparagus
Mushrooms with garlic oil
Rocket/Walnuts/Pear salad, with White truffle oil dressing

And for dessert..
Pavolva (It’s an Australasian thing. Like a cake sized meringue, with a marshmallowy center)
Orange blossom cream anglaise
Nectarine jelly
Brandy snap-style biscuits (Maybe.. depends if I run out of time..)

Photos will surely be taken as it all comes together, and will be posted tomorrow some time, most likely!

  1. Hi Yamila!

    It’s made in New Zealand; and it looks like these guys have it in their product list; so at least *someone* is importing it to Australia. (I assume you’re wanting to get it in Australia?)

    Hope this helps!

  2. Thanks
    the thing is I am here in Argentina, studying but I am also australian, and my boyfriend is aussie and has been living here for the past year. Here in Argentina there are many many varieties and types of cheeses, and alot of brie but my boyfriend was telling me it can not be exported or made in Australia due to the bacteria of fungi? in the cheese. But thanks for that.
    cheers
    Yamila
