Christmas Entertaining

December 14, 2017

Christmas time almost always means a fuller social calendar. If you're hosting a Christmas party this year, there's no need to be overwhelmed! We've pulled together a list of our favourite Christmas inspired finger food that will keep your guest fuelled. The best advice we can give you is to plan ahead - a stressed host is never fun! Once you have your menu sorted, sit down and make a list of which components can be pre-prepared, and what needs to be done on the day. That way you know you've done everything in your power to avoid stress on the day and leave you more time to enjoy the celebration!

Summer Punch

Celebrate without the headache with this deliciously refreshing alcohol-free punch! Our tip? Make sure that the Sparkling Ruby Cabernet is super chilled - Maggie suggests placing it into the freezer for 20 minutes prior to serving.

Prawn & Avocado Toasts

Good produce needs so little doing to it, so don't over complicate things. These bite sized toasts are brimming with flavour and perfect for sharing.

Deep Fried Brie with Quince Dipping Sauce

With a gooey centre and crispy exterior, these are as deliciously moreish as they sound! The brie can be crumbed in advance and stored in the freezer until ready to deep fry on the day. If frying from frozen, just make sure to cook for an additional minute - you don't want any cold centres!

Mini Banoffee Pies

You'll have to forgive your guests for going in for seconds! These little tarts are far more impressive than the effort required to make them. The tart shells can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container until ready to assemble.
