We had blinis (Waitrose) and smoked salmon instead of a starter on Christmas day. OH mixed the chopped salmon with a load of dill and I think some lemon juice and then mixed some more dill with soured cream and lj. He was very underwhelmed and thought the blinis were meh. He also put the same combo on Carrs black pepper water biscuits which he felt was much more successful. And they didn't get soggy, which I had thought might happen.

It wasn't really practical for us to warm the blinis immediately before serving, although we took them out of the fridge in advance and they were at room temperature, and I wonder if that wasn't part of the problem? They were very bland. Or maybe they just weren't very good blinis although Waitrose usually does that sort of thing well.

Russian ex DIL always insisted that the blinis should be warm ... they're much lighter and less rubbery when they're warm.

Edited to add: She would warm them by 'dry frying' them in a lightly buttered (with butter paper) heavy frying pan.

I like to lightly toast the supermarket ones - you can just about get away with them cold then but they are better warmed.

We had them on Christmas Day and popped them in the oven for a few minutes to warm & crisp slightly as it was on anyway. Otherwise I usually toast them in a frying pan.

At least she puts buckwheat in hers! So many bought ones are all wheat. Chopped herring (bought) is a good topping, and would go well with the caraway

She’s on Christmas / Celebrity University Challenge tonight if you are curious to see the person behind the column.

Yes, she is quite young
Given to wearing (as she did) plain trousers and sweaters with very red lipstick and bright red or green heels.

Ha! She looked older than I was expecting! :D As did Lucy Mangan. It was a bit Guardian orientated!

I really didn’t expect Lucy to look so erm, matronly.
