Yule be Glad you Read This!
Catering for Christmas can be time consuming, tiring and a bit stressy, so I thought I’d offer some suggestions to make it quicker, easier, more relaxed and perhaps more impressive!
This bookl (which I have recently updated so much it is now more than twice the size of the original!) does not contain all the information and directions that you can find everywhere in books, magazines and on the net such as roasting times or mince pie recipes. This contains a collection of useful ideas and recipes that as a professional chef I have used over the years to delight guests and customers without knackering myself!
Included are over 50 interesting recipes such as The Quickest, Easiest, Smoothest and Richest Chicken Liver Pâté I know, a super easy but Really Luxurious Bread Sauce and a gorgeous no-churn Christmas Pudding Ice Cream. I have also added every useful idea, hint and tip I can think of!
The chapters are ...
~ Pre-Dinner Drinks – it is perfectly acceptable to serve any of these drinks after dinner too!
~ Nibbles – for guests to nibble on whilst you do your final faff in the kitchen.
~ Starters – choose something you can do ahead, here are some ideas.
~ The Turkey Dinner & Vegetarian Alternatives – just in case you wondered … Making the Best Gravy Ever is Really Easy!
~ Side Dishes
~ Cranberry Sauces
~ The Cheese Course
~ Coffee & Accompaniments
~ Boxing Day & Thereafter ~ Boxing Day is possibly the Biggest Leftovers-Fest of the year so here are some suggestions.
~ Wrapping Up
In addition to the 50+ recipes are loads of useful tips and guidelines on how to make the perfect gravy, roasties, mashed potatoes, super light, quick and very cheap Yorkshire Puddings (just in case!), a good idea for making Mulled Wine and inspired ideas for leftovers.
