  3. Yes you have reminded with the Mumm Champagne that New Years should include a few bottles. Also great ideas for food for that evening. Keep up the good work but someone has to do it!

  4. Oh, oh, oh, I’ve not got a sweet tooth but gingerbread is a favourite. A gingerbread bar – wow! And $15 for champers and nibbles. Not bad! I somehow think Fethiye is a long way from putting on events like this. :)

  10. I think I can smell that gingerbread all the way in California. It looks so festive. Thanks also for continuing to provide us with such gorgeous photos, of the food and more ;)
