If you're like me and the most responsibility you get given at Christmas is organising breakfast – and if the though of this still causes stress and anxiety- then have no fear!
Whether it's preparing canapés, roast potatoes or even beverages, there are always instances that cause panic over the holidays. Appetisers, cakes and traybakes are perfect treats for unexpected guests, friends and family, and, when made in bulk, your life can be made even easier.
Food Network Chef Lotte Duncan, creates countless sweet and savoury delights for any occasion, but her Curried Sausage Rolls are the perfect festive indulgence.
Now, a Christmas dinner isn't complete without roast potatoes. But the perfect roasty can be quite difficult to achieve. Thankfully, Jun Tanaka's recipe guarantees crispy potatoes with a scruptious fluffy centre.
A secret to this technique is par-boiling just enough so the outside of the potato goes slightly soft.
Obviously food is a big part of our Christmas traditions but, having a drinks menu prepared and accessible can ease the panic that kicks in when somebody asks for something other than a glass of wine. Here, you'll find all of our seasonal, festive drinks and cocktail recipes.
However, if you're in need of an easy and delicious Champagne infused drink then look no further! Reza Mahammad's Rose Bellini will make anyone's Christmas that little bit more exotic.
