Me too, with space for 8 paddles.

Oy cheeky, come and say that right here if you dare ...

Two dishwashers came with the house, one in our kitchen and one for Ye Olde parish room kitchen, so no worries there.

Train to Neuchatel, then change for Fleurier, where the local bus will be waiting to take you up here in t'mountains.

Don't spoil the fun Odile. I was looking forward to seeing Porsche in his rubber gloves especially if they are pink

I agree with Sky - whatever blocks the smallest number of people in the kitchen for the shortest time, so that everyone can enjoy the occasion together.

All things being equal in terms of time and effort, I think the fondue chinoise and raclette options are more "convivial" than the turkey roast.
Quote:
We have a proper raclette thing similar to that one, that holds 2 half cheeses, but without the horns (sadly- this one looks so cute). I could then borrow and beg from the cheese shop and neighbours. I have to say that if we are more than 12, cooking turkeys with all the trimmings could be very hard work and I'd have to borrow neighbours ovens (I have 2). It would also make sure Porsche and his very much better half could come too.
You could just take Turkey off the menu! It takes so much effort - and if there's so many people there anyway, by the time it's been carved, it would probably be cold or the other end of the table will be finished! Leave that old tradition back in England I say!
