Christmas means many things to many people, and here at Appetite HQ, there are certain dishes guaranteed to please over the holiday period. Jane Pikett serves up our pick of the season…
In our house, it’s bread sauce. It is never served before lunch on Christmas Day, but thereafter, we generally end up with a dollop of it, hot or cold, on the side of virtually every lunch until New Year. And then not again until December 25 comes around again.
Spiced red cabbage is the same. The house is filled with the smell of a great vat of it cooking on Christmas Eve and then it is served almost continually from Christmas Day until New Year’s Day. I make so much that I have to freeze it for eating throughout January too. Then not again until Christmas.
If either of these essentials were absent over the holiday period, there would be anarchy, quite rightly.
Here are a few more Appetite family favourites. Enjoy!
