Simon Woods’ Xmas Tips

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Well let me be the first to wish you all a very Happy Christmas!!! Because the University term ends soon, I wanted to get in early to help you with your Christmas food preparations before you go.

This is such a fantastic time of year, with some amazing fresh produce available. It’s a time of year when we all do a lot of cooking for friends and family so these seasonal hints will help you out:

-       Buy the best quality you can afford, use seasonal produce and support local growers.

-       Root vegetables are fab; try red cabbage for a change with some sweet apple also bang in season.

-       Why not buy some fresh cranberries and make your own relish? Really simple and so much better than that rubbish you buy in a jar.

-       Try piercing some fresh chestnuts with a knife, roasting them through the oven, peel and eat whilst still hot. Amazing.

That’s all from me I’m off to stuff a big turkey!!!!

Have a good one

Simon
