Jamie Oliver Christmas Red Cabbage Recipe

Christmas Red Cabbage recipe by Jamie Oliver

I love Braised Red Cabbage this time of year. I’m often asked how best to cook it, so was pleased to see that Jamie Oliver has done a good Braised Red Cabbage recipe in his Christmas Cookery Book.  Better still he’s done a short video showing you how to cook it.

You might also like this Red Cabbage Recipe from the 2015 Waitrose Christmas magazine:

Prawn and Smoked Salmon Terrine recipe by Jane Lovett

 

prawn (shrimp) and smoked salmon terrineI was given a copy of this lovely Cookery book to review and the Prawn and Smoked Salmon Terrine immediately caught my eye as a nice simple starter to do on Christmas Day.  If your are about to have a big roast lunch you don’t really want anything too heavy as a starter.   I always think it’s good idea to have a cold starter as it gets everyone seated at the table and the family under control while you are sorting out the turkey.

I’ve add the full Prawn and Smoked Salmon Terrine recipe to the Christmas Recipe section.

Jane’s book is full of recipes that you can ‘do ahead’ so that you can spend more time with your family and guests.  I think it will be useful all year round but is especially relevant at Christmas when the focus should be on friends and family rather than being stuck in the kitchen while everyone else is having fun.
