The holidays call for for feasting. This time on The Table Set the guys sit down around an extended table full of friends to celebrate a mish-mash of holidays.
But feasting isn’t the only way to party. There’s also feeding people. Which is what Andy’s been up to in the dessert outside Palm Springs. All that cooking however, led to an angry twitter party of one. Those poor vegetarians just didn’t see it coming…
Combine in a leopard-spotted glass over ice. Stir. Enjoy.
Speaking of red wine Greg’s been cleaning the house and drinking red wine. Alone. That’s because he was recovering from the latest Table Set dinner party. It was broadly “holiday” themed with a vague nod to the fact that Hanukkah and Thanksgiving could be celebrated together for the first time (and won’t happen again for 70,000 years). It involved a lot of food, a lot of people and a great big mess. Not that he’s complaining, because sitting alone by the fire is a great way to start the holiday season.
Greg’s favorite part of the menu was a cocktail from Elana of the cocktail blog Stir and Strain. Her Averna Highball was a lightly alcoholic sparkler served in the middle of the meal. But there were plenty of other highlights to this meal. All the guests pitched in, each making a course for the menu.
On a previous podcast the guys made a few jokes about a Betty Crocker version of a Baked Alaska. Well, Andy and Elana decided to pitch in together and tackle what started as a joke and ended as a Pecan Pie Baked Alaska. A fitting ending to the holiday feast.
