INI­TIALLY, THINK­ING OF CHRIST­MAS

Cuisine - - GINNY GRANT -

can feel a lit­tle daunt­ing, but as it rolls closer I look for­ward to it. Yes, it can be a time-con­sum­ing fuss, but isn’t treat­ing your fam­ily and friends to good food a cause for cel­e­bra­tion? I take a slow-burner ap­proach to Christ­mas, do­ing ahead what I can, freez­ing if need be. I of­ten in­tro­duce some­thing new while keep­ing in old favourites. The fol­low­ing recipes are de­signed to work loosely as a menu – serve the shrub with the pikelets to start then carry on with the rest of the savoury dishes, fin­ish­ing with the mousse. And to help you out, there’s a handy list of when to do what!
