This meal plan sees out 2012 and welcomes 2013 with a vigorous handshake and big hug. Resolutions to keep, weight to lose, it's a biggie.
Monday (New Year's Eve)
We're at a party tonight, seeing in the New Year around the world. So we start with India at 8pm, Russia at 9pm, Greece and Italy at 10-11pm, then UK, and if we make it, Brazil. We've been allocated Russia.
Homemade blinis, with soured cream and caviar or smoked salmon, and beetroot and goats cheese.
Black Russians and Moscow mules to drink.
Tuesday (New Year's Day)
Roast lamb (if we can still see after all the vodka).
Leftover lamb soupy stew thing
