Bambi’s Winter Wonderland

December 13th, 2010

I promised to do some catering for my friend Katie’s art sale and and Christmas party this evening. As the event was called Bambi’s Winter Wonderland (after Catie’s Chihuahua, Bambi), it seemed fitting to go seasonal with the food.

Armed with my home made pastry, I made Rudolph (venison) sausage rolls and mince pies, along with mulled wine. The important thing here, is to make the pastry – it’s easier than you might think and your sausage rolls and mince pies will taste much better than the shop bought variety.  Somehow, during the excitement, I forgot to photograph the mulled wine, but my tip for anyone trying it, is buy very cheap red wine, don’t add much sugar and a couple of sprinkles of crushed chilli will add far more warmth than a slug of brandy. Orange juice is a better addition than sugar and don’t let the wine get too hot or the alcohol will evaporate.

We sold the food for £1 a pop, broke even and a charity stall, at the event, made some money too! All the food and drink was gone by 9pm. The Outside World Gallery, was at 44 Redchurch Street, E2 7DP.

I’m sure I heard someone singing, “Who Killed Bambi!”
