Christmas will be here in a few short days. So, what are you making? If you are looking for some ideas, no need to look any further. We’ve found holiday menus that will make your mouth water.
“I think the mistake people make most when entertaining is to get too fancy with the food,” says Nigella Lawson. “No one is ever too sophisticated for the basic pleasures of home cooking, and there is something about those old favorites that makes everyone feel a little leap of joy in the heart.”
If you want oodles and oodles of ideas, check out Jamie Oliver’s Family Christmas site. He boasts a recipe for “The Best Turkey In The World.” Hmm, too bad we didn’t have this one LAST month, but better late than never! Right?
According to Oliver, “In my books, the perfect bird is 6.5kg– 8kg in weight because that’s a good size to handle, feeds about 10 to 14 people and has better flavour than bigger birds. If you’re buying from a small producer, like the lovely turkey I used from my mate Paul Kelly, you’ll often find these birds come with their own cooking instructions. Really good-quality birds do cook in a shorter time so follow the instructions if it has them. “
