Christmas Shortbread Sharing Tree

Posted by Gill Bland Friday, 7th December 2018

At Christmas you may have people popping round unannounced and needing sugary sustenance, you may have the whole family over for extended periods and wanting to graze on sweet treats, or you may just be fed up of dried fruit and wanting something different. This stack of festive shortbread is great for sharing but also keeps incredibly well and looks good in the meantime if you don’t get around to using it straight away.

Christmas Entertaining

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Friday, 30th November 2018

Christmas is when a Rangemaster range cooker really comes into its own. Perfect for preparing the big day feast, these standout freestanding cookers are packed with all the features and functions you need to do Christmas entertaining in style. With so many models to choose from, in your choice of fuel and size as well as colour and finish, there are so many reasons why a Rangemaster is the business. Its large capacity ovens are just the right size for the turkey and all the trimmings. Go for a two-oven model with warming drawer and grill for the ultimate culinary centrepiece and take advantage of all the benefits of a multifunction oven, which can defrost, fan grill, brown and fan assist – with rapid response for a speedy heat up.

Mulled Wine Chocolate Cake

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 18th December 2017

I know some people get sick of the flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and orange zest at Christmas. I am not one of those people. I am one of those people who sprinkle all-spice into their hot Ribena as soon as the nights get dark in a bid to emulate mulled wine without consuming unhealthy amounts of the ruby-red spiced booze-of-delight. So, when I noticed a recipe for a red wine cake sometime earlier in the year I parked it at the back of my baker’s brain and waited for the festive season to come around so that I could make mulled wine chocolate cake. This recipe makes no apology for throwing all the Christmas flavours at it. You can stick to just mulled wine, you can have cinnamon icing and if you want to really go for it you can make a mulled fig jam to dot through the mixture or to fill the middle of each cupcake. It’s up to you how much you want to gild the Christmas lily (or indeed poinsettia).

Christmas Day made easy, with your Rangemaster range cooker

Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 28th November 2017

If I was only allowed to pick one day out of the three hundred and sixty five days in a year that I grateful for being a Rangemaster Range Cooker Owner that would definitely have to be Christmas Day. I have quite a large family and being the only foodie in the family, I somehow manage every year to get the job of Christmas lunch. So this year with fifteen for Christmas dinner, yeah that’s right fifteen hunger and often slightly merry mouths to feed, I truly am grateful for my Rangemaster Range Cooker. The Rangemaster Ovens have the largest oven capacities on the market, the main multifunction oven has a 73 litre capacity and the tall ovens in the 90cm and 100cm appliances have a 67 litre and 82 litre capacity respectively, making feeding a large number of people just that little bit easier.

Gingerbread Mocha Mousse Cake

Posted by Gill Bland Wednesday, 7th December 2016

Not everyone loves Christmas pudding and even if you do, it can be a bit much at the end ofa full Christmas Dinner. This dessert makes a lighter alternative and is quick and easy to assemble, especially if you make the biscuits ahead of time. It’s an ode to the Christmas drinks so popular in high street coffee shops at this time of year and who knows, maybe it’ll give you a nice caffeine boost at the end of the meal - just enough to make it through the washing up before you collapse in a heap.

It’s that time of year again

Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 15th November 2016

It’s that time of year again, the weather is getting cold, the hat, scarves, coats and gloves are being dug out of wardrobes, all the takeaway coffee cups have turned red and that certain department store have released the highly anticipated Christmas advert.

Leftover turkey? Here’s how to use it up...

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 21st December 2015

Turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, turkey curry, perhaps even turkey risotto, turkey stew… It can go on for days.  But it need not be a chore.

Planning leftovers, especially with too much turkey can be a pest.  From experience, ordering a full turkey of about 200g per person is plenty (including carcass weight).

Musings on Christmas dinner

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 8th December 2015

Christmas dinner - the most wonderful meal of the year?

I’m going to have come clean on this subject. I have only ever cooked Christmas dinner once. I massively over catered and I over cooked the veg. But, despite the spiced red cabbage mountain left after my attempt I’m not averse to the idea of trying again because you know what? I’m pretty certain that the cook is more critical on themselves than anyone else is of their cooking when it comes to Christmas dinner. In fact how about we don’t call it that? Let’s call it a turkey roast dinner to celebrate Christmas. It’s not your only dinner of the Christmas period after-all and there’s a lot more to Christmas than that one meal.
