Most im­por­tant meal of 2016

No. 1 Magazine - - INTERIORS -

The Christ­mas din­ner is the most-stressed-about meal of the year. A study found that half of peo­ple in the UK find pre­par­ing the turkey and trim­mings is the most chal­leng­ing task – prob­a­bly be­cause one in 10 spend six-plus hours in the kitchen. That same sur­vey, com­mis­sioned by Mag­imix in 2013, also found that peo­ple are un­der the great­est pres­sure at 12.56pm on Christ­mas Day. Avoid turkey-re­lated ten­sion by in­tro­duc­ing shop-bought short-cuts and pre­par­ing the ma­jor­ity of veg peel­ing the day be­fore, says chef and food writer John Gre­gory-smith. He also says, “sack off the starter”, adding: “Con­cen­trate on the main event and it will save you so much grief.”
