Perfect Recipes for Entertaining in the Festive Season

Dec 25, 2012 No Comments by

Christmas is a time for celebrating and enjoying time with friends and family. Often with the festive season the focus of family gatherings and time with friends is around a dinner table, sharing great food and Christmas, more than any other time of year has some special recipes which evoke wonderful Christmas memories. Classic baking recipes to try For many people Christmas just wouldn”t be Christmas without the traditional baked goods. Top of the list is of course the Christmas cake, a wonderfully rich, moist and boozy fruit cake, best baked as early as October to allow the cake to mature and the flavours to develop. A weekly “feed” with your alcohol of choice and it will be a perfect treat with a cup of coffee or some people even enjoy it with cheese. Similar, but with some special characteristics of its own is the Christmas pudding, some people insist it is the only authentic pudding after Christmas dinner. Packed with nuts and fruit, it can be enjoyed hot with custard or some brandy sauce. Mince pies are another classic baked good at Christmas; spiced and zesty dried fruits encased in some beautiful short crust pastry and let”s not forget shortbread, gingerbread biscuits, chocolate truffles, trifle and Yule log! If you are going to be doing all this baking for the festive season you will of course need some cheap catering equipment to get it all done. Baking requires many different tools and utensils, baking tins, seasonally shaped biscuit cutters, rolling pins and weighing scales to name just a few. If you are feeding large numbers, you will also need plenty of crockery and cutlery, especially if

you need large presentation plates and attractive dinnerware, suitable for a celebration. Savoury delights If you don”t have a sweet tooth, don”t worry, savoury food is just as rich and indulgent as the sweets! You will certainly need some to help you prepare and serve a full traditional Christmas dinner. Turkey, ham and stuffing, roast potatoes, roast vegetables and gravy all require military planning and precision to serve to a hungry family. And for those who insist they detest the Brussels sprouts, give them a makeover with bacon and chestnuts, all cooked in some indulgent butter, nobody could refuse them this way! Turkey is versatile and the breast and thigh meat offer two contrasting textures and flavours. Don”t worry if you have a lot left over, turkey is a wonderfully versatile meat and can be used in many different types of dishes in the days after Christmas. christmas festivities, Dating Symbol blog

A different bird Maybe you would like to try something different from the traditional turkey. Many other types of poultry and game are great to try at Christmas, roast goose, duck, pheasant, quail or guinea fowl are a fantastic alternative if you would like to experiment with something different. The vegetarian often has a tough time at Christmas, but if you are presenting your vegetarian guest with a nut roast, don”t forget to jazz it up with some great herbs and spices. Christmas comes only once a year, so don”t worry too much about the calories! Enjoy all the festive season has to offer and make good your indulgences in January!
