I'm Cooking with Gordon Ramsay's Christmas Video

A number of years ago I made Chef Gordon Ramsay's Christmas ham with pear and saffron chutney along with his pumpkin and wild mushroom soup from this beautiful video.  My family loved it and requested it often thereafter.  My plans are to make it all tomorrow on Christmas day.  If you're looking for a beautiful dinner, I couldn't recommend anything more highly than this one.

By the way, I'll be replacing the demerol sugar that Ramsay uses with Coconut Crystals and the honey with Coconut Nectar.  I know it will still be delicious like this.

We already had one family celebration last weekend and we served a classic rib roast, yorkshire pudding, mashed sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts with bacon and Dijon and a gorgeous pear tart.  It was all wonderful and I've been enjoying the leftovers for several days now.  

Amanda is rubbing the roast with rosemary and other dry herbs and inserting slices of raw garlic into  little cuts in the surface of the roast she has made with a knife.  
Leftover mashed sweet potatoes.  Delicious!  We simply peeled and boiled the sweet potatoes then mashed them with grass fed butter, sea salt and black pepper and drizzled in a little organic cream.  They tasted like dessert.

An amazing pear tart recipe I have loved for years from Martha Stewart's book, Pies and Tarts.  Replace the crust with our einkorn crust recipe or with the paleo crust recipe from our pecan pie and change out the sugar for Coconut Nectar and a little stevia.  

Merry Christmas!
