  A New Year's Lunch
"Every year, I like to invite lots of friends for New Year's Day lunch."

It's very casual; my friends know to drop in any time. I have two big pots of soup simmering on the stove: Cheddar Corn Chowder and Lentil Vegetable Soup. [more]

Lentil Vegetable Soup
Cheddar Corn Chowder
Shortbread Cookies

I place everything on the kitchen table: a Baked Virginia Ham, a tossed green salad, chunks of English Farmhouse Cheddar and Stilton from Neale's Yard Dairy in London, a cutting board with Eli Zabar's wonderful breads like the sourdough or health, and a tray of assorted shortbread for dessert. We watch old movies all afternoon as everyone helps themselves to the buffet in the kitchen. Everything's done before the first guest arrives and it's a warm and cozy way for me to start the New Year with my friends."
