FREE Thermomix recipes for festive feasting
When entertaining, I’ve got two rules – I want to be sitting at the table with my guests (not stuck in the kitchen!) and the cleanup needs to be as minimal as possible (so after the event I’m also not stuck in the kitchen!). Christmas time, as with any entertaining, is about the connection, the celebration! The love and appreciation. And while good food is (very!) important, it’s not the pinnacle, it’s the vessel.
So having said all that, let’s look at how to make your festive entertaining easy and stress-free, focusing on recipes that that can be made well in advance and are easy to plate up. My absolute go-to (especially for desserts) that tick both these boxes are individual serves – they always look adorable (no fancy food styling required!), they’re easy to transport in their moulds if needed, there’s no messy serving at the table, and if they’re on a stick (like my Mojito Pops or Flux Magnums) there’s no dishes! Whether it be my bar moulds, dariole moulds or ice cream moulds – I’ve got your cute individual serves covered!
