Time for mulled wine and mince pies
Christmas is coming, which means, apart from the geese that are getting fat (or not anymore, who eats goose nowadays for Christmas?) is that we can enjoy seasonal food and drinks. I had this mulled wine and these two mince pies after a visit to one of the earliest Christmas markets, in a local hotel, about two weeks ago. Two very English delicacies. I have to confess, I am not the biggest fan of mince pies, but I do enjoy them wit mulled wine. I would enjoy mulled wine even more with the home made donuts we make in my family (now THAT'S truly a decadent match), but I have to compromise and enjoy local seasonal desserts. The mulled wine was nice, in any case, and the mince pies as good as they can be.
