Food Trip Friday---Christmas Festives

I love preparing foods for events like Christmas and treat my family like we're eating in a restaurant although we're celebrating Christmas Day at home! Roasted Chicken as the main, baby leaf veggies topped with roasted beef for the salad(binili ko lang ang beef), some appetizers and of course, how can I forget a sparkling wine for toasting ( for me and hubby ) while sharing a great dinner. Christmas in Japan ain't complete without a cake at the table and I thought that they're too stuffed for dessert but still had some room to fill the milky crepe and layered by the richness of mascarpone cheese and was luscious!
Simple Hors d' oeuvre--Terinu (salami&cheese),mashed potato wrapped with ham(mash boiled potato, add boiled egg and cucumber(thinly sliced), mix with mayonaise, add salt and pepper to taste then wrap with ham and arrange platter
Rice topped with Prosciutto--mix cooked rice(in a bowl)with ham(cut in small pieces), zasai ( chinese pickles ), some sesame seeds and mix, top in raw prosciutto and sprinkle ground black pepper

Roasted Chicken--dust chicken legs with salt and pepper, marinate for one day with marmalade, soysauce, sake or white wine. Put chicken in a 200 deg C pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes until done. Arrange platter, garnish with bed of veggies
Christmas Cake from Re Mercier-- it was ordered on-line and shipped to us before Christmas complete with cocoa powder for garnishing,freezed blueberries and raspberries, Christmas candles and decors plus my order a Silhoutte Glass candle holder for a romantic effect.
Tiramille De NoelMilky crepe folded with creamy and rich Tiramisu (an Italian dessert)
