No 1. The Show Stopper

This roasted spiced butternut tart with homemade rosemary shortcrust will knock the socks off your guests.

It'll be the perfect centrepiece with the pomegranate jewels and brussels sprouts topping.

The tart crust doesn't need to be homemade, but I am slightly biased with this gorgeous creation flavoured with fresh rosemary - the ultimate Christmas herb.

No 2. Maple Roasted Carrots

The best thing about Christmas food in my opinion is the abundance of seasonal veg. The humble carrot can be turned into a sumptuous side, roasted in maple syrup and topped with

No 4. Butternut & Brussels Pastry Wreath

This pastry wreath is a showstopper for sure. Packed with flavour, it's incredibly easy to create the filling. The pastry wreath is also easy, you just need two circles to cut around to create the wreath, then freestyle the toppings.

Everyone’s Welcome This Christmas

Celebration with abundance

Christmas platters are such a great way to celebrate lots of different food at once. From pates to dips paired with crackers and crunchy veg - they're my favourite thing to put together. There’s something about everyone’s hands dashing over the table to grab a cracker or to scoop up the last mince pie.

Tesco gave the challenge to recreate one of their Christmas recipes (you can find a range on their website) to share a gorgeous abundance of festive food for the #EveryonesWelcome campaign! The star of the show (yet very humbly sat in the middle) is a mushroom pate made with porcini and shiitake paired with fresh thyme.

On the platter

I've surrounded it with Tesco rosemary crackers, fresh grapes, crunchy veg as well as panettone and mince pies from their free from section. I should also touch on the Free From Christmas range which this year seems to be bigger than ever. It’s always a good idea to have gluten free or dairy free options on the table to make sure everyone is catered for.

I like to have a selection of sweet, savoury, healthy and indulgent on my table at Christmas to make sure there is a little something for everyone, really tying into the Everyone’s Welcome idea surrounding this season.
