Tonight's dinner

For tonight's dinner I drew inspiration from the ingredients involved in a traditional Christmas dinner - smoked salmon, turkey, port and stilton, candied fruit - and then put them in different places.  

Everything is home-made, from the olives and sourdough to the brioche and ice cream.  I love preserving things - be it curing, pickling, smoking, bottling, fermenting, candying or confiting - and such larder skills fill the menu.

As ever, ingredients come from my fabulous local butcher, fishmonger, greengrocer and Riverford Organic.
