Season’s Eatings: Christmas Food Postcards

When it comes to photographing food at Christmas, the family is unanimous. “Hurry up before it gets cold” is merely a cover up for “put that camera away”. As a result, my efforts at capturing every dish at its prime are futile. I am merely afforded a few seconds before platters are shuffled, pretty plating is destroyed and food is dished up on individual plates.

Here is a selection of the best of Christmas food 2010. Among the missing notables, there was the elaborate turkey stuffing cooked with whole chestnuts and decorated with toasted pine nuts and almonds,  the adults-only alcohol doused Christmas pudding ice-cream and an elaborate game and port sauce to accompany the roast pheasants.
