Here are some ideas for a long grazing style lunch and a simple Boxing Day easy festive menu.
In our house breakfast on Christmas morning starts invariably with a fruit platter followed by a slice of my Stollen with coffee.
Then we’ll carve a whole small Turkey, apple brined and hickory smoked . This is started the day before and is incredibly moist and delicious. If it is a hot day, being able to cook this out doors on a Webber is ideal. This will be accompanied by Spiced Cranberry Sauce, Sweet Potato Rosemary Purée from the Armadale kitchen, Red Pepper Sweetcorn Smoked Cheddar Tart for the vegetarians, Tomato Pie with my seasoned bread crumbs and a family tradition, Stephanie Alexander’s Petit Pois, freshly podded peas cooked with lettuce ham and butter.
