No. 1 Magazine - - SCOTLAND’S NO.1: CHRISTMAS SPECIAL -

Mass Pro­duce

Make one big starter and dessert and let peo­ple help them­selves!

Glim­mer­ing Gold

No Christ­mas set­ting is com­plete with­out a touch of glim­mer­ing gold – add this colour for in­stantly lux­u­ri­ous look!

Get shop­ping

It sounds silly but have a rum­mage to see what you ac­tu­ally have in the house and then write a shop­ping list – that way you won’t miss a thing!

Fail to pre­pare...

Do as much as you can in ad­vance, make your starter and dessert the day be­fore. You can even pre-peel veg­eta­bles in ad­vance.

Tra­di­tional Red

Red is ba­si­cally the colour of Christ­mas, and of course, love! So in­ject a lit­tle love into your Christ­mas din­ner by stay­ing tra­di­tional.

Write a list

If you note down ev­ery­thing you need to do and how long each item takes to cook you can plan out what to cook when.

Freeze it!

Put your freezer to good use this fes­tive sea­son, you can freeze sticky tof­fee pud­ding (thanks Delia!) mince pies, soup, etc a few weeks in ad­vance.
