Cheese Fondue Party

今日はクリスマスに来ていただいたお友達2家族(ご夫婦1組と5歳のご夫婦プラス4歳の女の子)と、フォンデューパーティーをしました。クリスマスに集まった時にフォンデューが話題になり、じゃあ次回はフォンデューね、という話になっていたので。

We had a cheese fondue party with the families (1 couple and 1 family with a 5-year-old girl), the same members as at our Christmas Dinner.  When we had the Christmas dinner here, we talked about cheese fondue and said we’ll get together for that next time.

バタバタしていてほとんど写真を撮る余裕なく、撮ったのはこの2枚のみ。

I was quite busy and didn’t have a lot of chance to take photos but did manage to take these two.

写真にはありませんが、最初にフムスとピタチップスをつまんでから、チーズフォンデュー。いつもと変わらない内容ですが、生ハム、チョリソ、フェネル入りのイタリアンサラミ、茹でたじゃがいもと人参、サラダたっぷり(トマト、玉ねぎ、パプリカ、きゅうり、りんご、レタス類、ドレッシングはレモン汁、粒マスタード、塩胡椒、蜂蜜、オリーブオイル)。

There is no photo of it but I served some Hoummus and pita chips first while we waited for the dinner to be ready.  The dinner was cheese fondue, Parma ham, chorizo, finocchio salame, boiled small potatoes and carrots, a large salad (tomato, onion, red & yellow pepper, cucumber, apple & lettuce, dressed with lemon juice, grain mustard, salt, pepper, honey & olive oil).

これまた写真にはありませんが、デザートは用意したチョコレートフォンデュー(マシュマロとイチゴ)とお手土産にいただいたタルトやケーキでした。

Again no photos but I prepared chocolate fondue for dessert and served it with marshmallow and strawberries and we also had tarts and cakes that the guests brought.

食事中はシャンパン、食後は女性陣はいただいた白ワイン、男性陣はシングルモルトのウィスキーを飲みながら、遅くまで話も弾みとても楽しいひとときでした。

We had Champagne with the dinner and afterwards moved to the coffee table, where we girls had white wine that the guests brought and the boys had single malt whisky while we chatted until late.  We had a lovely evening and I hope our friends did, too.
