Turkey and black pudding. 10 on 10!

Why do Christmas work do menus always sound better than they actually end up being?

Skipping the main one at some dogshit fairy tale themed place in Holborn, but for the team one I’m having:

  • Sweet chilli chicken wings with spring onions, coriander and sesame
  • Roast Norfolk turkey with beef dripping potatoes, pig [singular] in blanket, seasonal trimmings & vegetables, gravy
  • Christmas pudding WITHOUT brandy sauce

The menu has split the office along snootiness lines, with the particularly posh people turning up their noses at it.

Antipasta Della Cassa
Truffle butter rib eye steak
Torta Di Cioccolato

So, a bowl of olives, a steak, and a chocolate tart, then?

(they tart the names up better than this but basically…)
Cheese and onion soufflé with a salad
Tomato and red pepper risotto

Stop ruining christmas you prick

Literally the only (probably) lactose free starter. I don’t even like chicken wings.

Ah I forgot about your ahem issues.

We aren’t having one this year.

we’ve done this

nothing because they’ve picked somewhere that won’t cater to allergies/requirements. last year the same thing, and i didn’t eat anything. year before they had a proper kitchen so actually catered to me and the other person with allergies. year before that i gave all my food away.

Team dinner

Tarragon, creme fraiche, chestnut shavings

Charred sweetcorn, red pepper oil
