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.

Supersized Christmas

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Tuesday, 1st December 2015

They say that good things come in small packages and whilst this is true in many respects, bigger is definitely better when it comes to cooking the Christmas feast. When you consider all the elements that make up this traditional family meal, from the roast potatoes crisp with goose fat to the turkey surrounded by little pigs in blankets, not to mention the vegetables, the gravy and the Christmas pudding, as well as any extra sides and vegetarian dishes, it’s essential to have the biggest ovens you can sensibly squeeze into the kitchen. Rangemaster’s Excel 110 range cooker is guaranteed to take the stress out of the big day as it comes with two large A-rated ovens, a smaller slow cook oven, grill, warming zone, griddle and six-burner gas hob. Take your pick from silver, gloss black, stainless steel, royal pearl, slate or, perfect for the festive season, a mouthwatering cranberry shade to suit your scheme.

Christmas Breakfast

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 16th December 2014

What do you normally have for breakfast on Christmas day? It’s a tough one – do you go light to leave space for extra stuffing (literally and figuratively) later on? Do you go decadent and rich? Do you wish you could go decadent and rich but really grab half a slice of lukewarm toast as the kids drag you to “see what Father Christmas brought?

 

After carefully considering the festive break-fast I thought that what would be most useful was a customisable option. Something that can be made easily and eaten either slowly in conjunction with a bucks fizz, or in a flurry of shredded wrapping paper with a mug of tea.

It's Not Too Late. Don't Worry.

Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 9th December 2014

Stir-up Sunday was a few weeks ago and traditionally this was the day one made their Christmas pudding, however it’s not too late to make one, it just won’t be as mature in flavour as it could be.  Relax, put the tree up, deck the halls and get ready for Christmas.

Prepare ahead for Christmas

Posted by Guest Blogger Tuesday, 3rd December 2013

As the song goes "It's the most wonderful time of the year". I don't know about you, but I just HATE it when one of my colleagues announces in September that all of the Christmas shopping has been completed. I consider myself a very organised man, but Christmas, I'm never ready, but I love Christmas. If it's with my family its back to Belfast or if it's with Mother-In-Law it's off to Frankfurt. I'm always back in London after a few days away for New Year to celebrate with friends. In essence, it's a week of dinners...

Christmas Pudding

Posted by Guest Blogger Tuesday, 19th November 2013

In the Christian faith, this Sunday (24th November 2013) is the last Sunday before Advent, when the Christmas season starts. Back in Queen Victoria's day (who owned a Kitchener, the precursor of the Rangemaster), the Sunday before Advent was known as ‘Stir-up Sunday.’ Traditionally parents would show their children how to make a ...
