1. Swap out
Vegetarian dishes are more than a second thought nowadays, so why not think about swapping some of your traditional meats for a textured vegetarian dish. Or at least, serve them up as tasty alternatives.
2. No food left behind
You know that no matter how much you eat, there’s always extra food and ingredients in the kitchen after Christmas dinner. Don’t waste a thing. Instead, buy some soft rolls and create a platter of festive sandwiches to serve up at your next gathering. They won’t last long.
3. Eat what you drink
It’s common to enjoy a little tipple over the Christmas season, and what better way to include your favourite drinks into your dining that to add a splash to your dishes. Gravies, creams and cakes all taste amazing with a hint of alcohol included.
4. Let it sparkle
A big trend this year is adding gold, silver and sparkles to your festive feasts. Introduce a little glamour to your table settings and really make that show-stopping cake pop with a generous helping of glitz.
5. Prepare to feast
There’s enough happening on Christmas day without adding stress to yourself. So set your menu early, plan ahead, and start your prep the night before. When the time comes to enjoy all this food, you don’t want to be burnt out. This is your time to relax as well, let everyone else know it.
