Many years ago,at this time of year I was "FULL" of festive spirit !
Not because of drinking it !! but just through sheer hard work.
For my sins I chose to become a Chef,and this time of year we used to "SCREAM"
But that was over 25 years ago,and apart from the odd occasion my kitchen duties are over.
OR SO I THOUGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today, everything that I had done years ago ( Catering ) came flooding back !
I was asked to cook "Christmas Dinner" for 70 people !!! what a challenge, but one to relish.
Rolled up the sleeves,sharpened the knives,and off we went - a great success- but as I said in the title....................................
IN AT THE DEEP END !!!!!!!!
