Amazing Food for a Merry Christmas

December 14, 2020

Well 2020 has been quite a year! We’ve been learning, adapting, teaching, and we’ve become masters of our kitchens! We’ve been training all year for Christmas dinner so let’s do this!

Your Christmas celebration may be a bit smaller for 2020, but it can be big on flavour and full of enjoyment. Let’s put together a meal that is going to make the day memorable. Let’s enjoy Amazing Food for a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Menu Ideas for Small Groups

Christmas is going to be scaled back in size, but not in flavour! Turkey is still the number one go-to and we all love leftovers, the more the merrier! Not up for a turkey? Why not do a roast chicken, duck, or ham with smaller portions of the traditional sides. Pick a couple of your favourites and enjoy! The upside of not serving a larger meal is that you can make whatever you and your immediate family loves with no expectations. Christmas pizza? Why not? Let the new traditions rule the day!
