Donny & Ritsy Cook Christmas Lunch

My first Christmas Pudding

Traditionally Christmas lunch is spent with my dad’s family, but this year lunch was relegated to a 7:30am breakfast (which we couldn’t bring ourselves to commit to) so we decided to cook Christmas lunch for a party of 3!

Our Christmas morning started with what has become a tradition for us – Waffles with fresh berries and vanilla ice cream – yum!

After breakfast we began to work on lunch. We chose a pretty simple menu to make things easy on ourselves…

My dad loves duck, and there was a delicious looking recipe in the December issue of Gourmet Traveller for Roast duck with cherries and roast kipfler potatoes so that was main course sorted. As the weather was going to be warm, I was toying with the idea of a family favourite – shredded duck salad with jellyfish. Donny was slightly apprehensive, wondering whether a duck duo would be a bit too much, but the $7 ducks we stumbled upon sealed the deal. What a duck feast we were going to have!
