As has become something of a tradition we invited friends without plans to join us Christmas Eve for dinner. As this tends to be a childless gathering we up the ante on ourselves, cooking something new or time consuming or both.
My husband and I recently watched an episode of Kylie Kwong‘s Simply Magic where she made a poached duck. It looked tasty and I decided that would be the Christmas Eve centerpiece this year. It was more work than I expected however it came out very tasty. I sliced the breast thin and we served it on Chinese moo shi pancakes with an assortment of raw vegetables & a couple of sauces.
I rounded out the menu with a veggie pad thai and stir fried baby bok choi. Dessert was a chai tea custard.
Hope everyone ate well over the holidays!
