We had mushroom stuffed with Brussels pate as a starter; I had either non-stick mushrooms or non-stick breadcrumbs, but in the event it didn't seem to matter too much, and those on the top didn't make any bids for freedom. For the main course, I tried out nwhyte's recipe for Roast Boar with Juniper Berries, and I can thoroughly recommend it. We rounded things off with a lime cheesecake prepared the night before. There may also have been a bottle or two of wine. In between the food and drink there was fine conversation and my hands stumbled across the piano a couple of times (Schubert and Eric Coates - Calling all Workers is my own Promenade Indulgence).
At an early stage in the kitchen proceedings I discovered what it is like to have a tin of hot fat tip off an oven shelf and pour onto your wrist - my advice is, don't try this at home, or anywhere else for that matter. kharin did the sensible thing with an improvisation of a bag of frozen veg; as I pressed this on my wrist, I noted the proximity of arteries and the fact that after a few minutes my entire hand was chilling significantly. I have a rather large blister and a further area of rather pink skin on my wrist, but fortunately there does not appear to be any serious damage.
