Christmas Greetings from Lard Island

Christmas CardIt’s that magical time of year once again, and on Lard Island we are decking the halls and preparing for that great feast that is the highlight of our culinary calendar.  Before we hurl ourselves manfully at the groaning board of festive fare I wanted to wish all our friends everywhere around the globe a very merry Christmas and raise a glass to toast you all for making what we do for a living fun and constantly interesting.  To Lardies everywhere, your good health, wealth and happiness.  Cheers!
Rich & Nick
