Be the host with the most this year…
With exactly one month (wow) til Christmas our calendars are filling up with festive plans: Christmas parties, drinks with neighbours and dinners with friends. If December has crept up on you and you’re in need of some inspiration before guests descend on your house, we’re here with our REAL guide to festive hosting. Let’s get started!
11:00am - Everyone needs a planTake an hour to flick through your favourite cookbooks, the ones you know always deliver when you’re cooking for guests or those that have some killer canape recipes that are bound to impress. Mob’s delicious pesto sausage rolls are one of our go-to’s. Jot down your shopping list and head out the door!
12:00am - Let’s get REALHead to your local farm shop or supermarket, grab your ingredients and pick up a bottle or two of REAL while you’re there. One of our favourites is Peterley Manor Farm, just down the road from us in Buckinghamshire, for their delectable seasonal produce!
1:00pm - Time to chillA relaxed host is a good host, so before you start prepping, make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and put your feet up. Your bottles deserve the same treatment, pop them in the fridge so they’re deliciously chilled by the time your guests arrive.
1:30pm - Hit the kitchen
Pop on your favourite tunes and start the prep. Whether that’s some serious mise en place, preparing your meal kit from The Dishpatch, or just getting giant hunks of cheese out of the fridge so that they can come to temperature, we’re not here to judge!
