The Gastronomy of Christmas

There is more here on social aspects than tinselism




Do you remember this picture from the "Welcome" page?
Find out why this here later.

This page is to help you towards the spirit of Christmas.  

In the western world, it is when gastronomy is in sharp focus.
 
If you would rather see tinsel first then click the cabin link above. It is part of the Christmas we think we could have had if it were not for commercialism.

It probably did not register when you first saw the picture that there is snow on the ground.  It is probably a turkey under the knife and it is not cracker time yet in this household.  Next door, Christmas hats have already fallen into the soup. 

Yes, there are napkins but as a token gesture?  

If you have just come from the Symphony page, Christmas music is more than carols.  On that page - a meal is a tune.  Mother hums the tune in the kitchen, father waves his conductor's baton at the turkey.  Family and guests say "Play it again, Sam"
