Cheese. More specifically, a cheese board with a mix of sharp chedder, some red leicester, double glouster, shropshire blue, a gooey brie, and some creamy goats cheese, fresh baguette, and some rich creamy butter.
A full-on roast dinner, I suspect, but we're lucky enough to have some excellent farmland around here, so can get a number of ingredients (not least a nice, free-range bird!) direct from farms or growers.
I seem to also end up making my own bread at Christmas, including bagels for breakfast. Again, there's a good mill nearby, whose strong flour produces outstanding bread.
Programs: Continental OnePass, American Airlines, Delta
