If you follow me on Facebook or instagram you would have caught my excitement when Oprah Winfrey liked one of my photos on Instagram. Some suggested that this might be the peak of my online existence and perhaps I should just retire while I was on top.
I'm really bad at taking advice, so instead of retiring, I invited Oprah to afternoon tea at the farm while she's nearby for her An Evening with Oprah tour.
Christmas Antipasto Wreath
salt & pepper
½ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
4 slices proscuitto
handful each olives, semidried tomatoes, diced feta cheese
1 tbs capers
chives, finely chopped
Peel, stone and mash the avocados. Zest half the lemon, the juice the whole lemon. In a large bowl combine the avocados, lemon zest and lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes.
On a flat platter, spoon the avocado mash into a circle. Decorate the circle with the olives, semidried tomatoes and feta. Slice the prosciutto into ribbons and arrange on the wreath. Scatter with capers and sprinkle with the finely chopped chives. Serve with lavosh and bread sticks.
So there you have it - a simple, stylish Christmas appetiser that's fit for a queen (or an uber-celebrity).
If you bump into Oprah between now and Thursday, let her know the invite stands, otherwise I'll see her at the show on Thursday night.
