duck, chestnuts, and Bordeaux wine

Wishing you all an incredibly merry Christmas and a happy 2012. My confit de canard recipe coming up this week. Import from France, coupled with a fine Bordeaux wine, and for dessert, diples straight from Athens. Chestnuts straight from my farmer's market in front of my place in Maroussi. Also more photos to come from my weekend trip back to Athens where I had an apéritif for friends and a big fat Greek family dinner.

Health and peace and joy to you and your loved ones.
