New Year's Eve gathering 2013

Every year we celebrate New Year's Even with a group of friends. This year the main courses focused on seafood, which suited me very well since I love seafood and Brittany is the region that produces plenty of them.

As usual we started with some appetizers. Foie Gras (fat liver of a duck or a goose) is one of the popular ones.

The seafood platter. Unlike in Malaysia where we like to cook crabs with sauces, here we like to eat them after boiling. I love them both ways.

4 giant spider crabs waiting to be eaten. Love the sweet succulent meat.

Can you guess what this is? The spider crab brown meat mixed with some butter and spread on  a French bread.

This remained me of snail. I tried them before but was not pleased with the taste. So I didn't venture into it this time.

Overall it was a very good idea to have seafood platter during festival. I won't mind having it again next year.


  1. Happy new year to you and your family. I love to eat seafood so I am salivating at your food photos.

  2. Bonne annee et bonne sante! French sure love their seafood platter and foie gras for Christmas and New Year - but I'm now hooked on galette des rois!
