Christmas is always the busiest time for our family, Everyone has a task to bring in a their own signature dish over to our uncle’s or grandparents place so we could all feast on different varieties such as asian to fusion to western foods. Because we have a huge family, think of the movie ‘My big fat greek wedding’, we always end up wasting alot of our food, so everyone gets to bring what ever remaining left overs.
This year since my family and I celebrated our christmas in London, the gathering was more intimate but still a huge feast, which had taken days to prepare.
To mix things up before the main dish was ready, we ate foie gras, another traditional dish between the family. Eaten during special occasions such as christmas to have a little bit of a french delicacy.
The day before christmas, my brother, dad and I went to Selfridges for grocery shopping. Obviously when it came to buying seafood, dad got a little carried away and over bought as usual. We ate delicious fresh salmon as dad was looking forward to eating it.
And lastly, the main dish which everyone had been looking forward is the families famous christmas dish. A fusion style, which is extremely spicy called devil curry. You can tell just by hearing the name that the dish is going to be extremely hot, which was. Everyone began sweating, coughing and gasping for water. This dish is only for the strong hearted.
In the end of the feast, we were all full, so to digest our food, we all played the WII which my brother had bought us for.
