If you’re anything like me, by the time December 25th rolls around, you’re sick of the sight of turkey. (No, not just cos I’m Greek) So if you want to mix it up a bit with your Christmas party this year, then look no further!
I’ve got pretty experimental with the starters menu, my favourites being the pink hummus and butternut squash bruschetta, and if you want a classic Greek winter warmer then spicy baked feta cheese is the way to go. Classic garlic mushrooms are pimped up with bits of bacon and blue cheese and served on brioche, and carrot and ginger soup has hints of coconut.
My main menu is inspired by Alpine mountain food, Tartiflette comes just under snowboarding in my list of favourite things ever, and since I wont be strapping on a board for the next few weeks its safe to say I will be gaining a few kilos this winter!
If you haven’t tried it yet, Tartiflette is beautiful concoction of potatoes, bacon, onions and cream baked with Reblochon cheese, and goes great with a side of cured meats, pickles and a glass of red wine.
Another hearty warmer is the Beef Bourguignon, but don’t worry it’s not all aimed at carnivores! I’ve given our classic roast vegetables a bit of an upgrade and will be serving them with roasted red pepper hummus, feta and olives. The festive vegan option is a winter vegetable stir fry with walnuts and cranberries.
In a compromise between a Caffi Kiki special and a Christmas Classic is the “Ultimate Christmas Wrap” – crispy turkey, stuffing and cranberry. If you want to go all out then try the “Dog in a blanket” – A giant pig-in-blanket served in a brioche bun with stuffing, cranberry sauce, dipping gravy and skinny fries.
If you’ve still got room for pudding then it doesn’t get more Christmassy than the trio of Greek desserts: pastries, cakes and biscuits with flavours of orange, cinammon and syrup. If you want something more traditional try our best ever chocolate brownie, decadent cheecake or Christmas pudding. If you haven’t got a sweet tooth then treat yourself to our Welsh cheese platter served with bara brith.
