Work Christmas Party Starters Thread

You could be a difficult one and ask them to replace the bacon with balsamic onions. But I’d also imagine this means they’ve used some kind of chicken stock so just get the cheese ffs stop asking the waitress questions she didn’t make the soup

The Dishoom Christmas set ‘feast’ thing is truly remarkable.

I’m having
Beetroot, Dill and Gin-Cured Salmon, Herb Crème Fraiche, Brown Bread (NF)

Not sure how it’s gonna work tbh because I am the only vegan or vegetarian so I don’t know if it works on the basis of everyone having the same thing? Can’t be tho.

Also had to have a little pop at the poor young new boy who organised it cause he booked it for 7pm?? WTF man its a LUNCH so now its 3pm…which isn’t ideal but i’ll take it/go for drinks beforehand

We had to pre-order. Cheese it is.

Going to have zero Christmas parties to go to this year, bit sad about that.

Jesus - he’s learned a very serious lesson here.

My choices are Jerusalem artichoke veloute with herring caviar, citrus vinaigrette and toasted sourdough
or Loch Fyne smoked salmon roulade with chestnuts

We’re going somewhere new this year, a newbie is organising it and they’ve chosen some gastropub with a ‘feasting’ menu where no one gets to choose what they eat. Dont really understand how it works, but we’re all having smoked salmon, beetroot and horseradish to start and everyone is furious about it.

we’re just going to a pub :woman_shrugging: relieved tbh as i’m so fussy
