Wow…is all I can say to our incredible Christmas day Feast!

The Ultimate Entertainer's Menu

My beautiful friend Emily is probably the best entertainer I know, and with no detail spared she put together the ultimate entertainer’s menu for our Christmas lunch.  If being a professional entertainer was a job (is it?  How cool would that be!), then my friend would actually nail it.

I don’t really even know where to start.

Maybe I will just leave you to salivate over the pictures.  Because seriously…!

I have no idea how she cooked all of this, but this is the Ultimate Entertainer’s Menu as created by my talented friend:

  • A Whole Chicken, served with roasted potato, pumpkin and sweet potato;
  • A gigantic pork filled with stuffing, served with a selection of roasted vegies;
  • An equally gigantic ham, served with freshly marinated and pan-fried prawns;
  • A pear, walnut and rocket salad (the only thing I can take credit for in this whole feast) – recipe below;
  • A selection of condiments, including cranberry sauce, balsamic vinegar and exceptional quality salad drizzling oil;
  • Mini pavlova and cheesecake served with fresh cream and a selection of seasonal summer fruit (Cherries, blueberries and strawberries);
  • Champagne – a menu necessity!

Holy WOW!

To make the pear, walnut and rocket salad you will need:

baby rocket and baby spinach, washed and dried;

raw and natural walnuts, roughly broken;

1 green pear, thinly sliced long-ways;

1/2 avocado, cubed;

feta, cubed or crumbled;


Combine all ingredients gently and serve in a large salad bowl.  This salad is best served with a balsamic dressing…

And a glass of Champagne…

This menu was also super fresh so didn’t leave that food coma Christmas feeling.

Would you add any of these ideas to your Ultimate Entertainer’s Menu?
