MYC Christmas Menu Ideas
Posted in: RECIPE
What’s making you giddy about Christmas? Here at MYC, what we love about the holiday season is the fact that everyday is a reason to celebrate. It gives us something to look forward to every day up until New Year’s such as the food, the drinks, the decorations, etc. In lieu of the holiday spirit, we’ve come up with a Christmas menu recipe guide that’s going to help you out should you need something to whip up in this month of festivities. See our recipe guide below:
Scallops with Curried Parsnip Purée, Parsnip Crisps and Pomegranate for Starters by Marcus Wareing
Set the festivities right by starting off your meal menu with a delicious "Scallops with Curried Parsnip Purée, Parsnip Crisps and Pomegranate" recipe. Its tender scallops and sweet promegranate dressing is going to be a crowd-pleasing starter, melding the flavours of land and sea in this flavourful parsnip dish. When everyone's done with their already alluring starter, serve them with a classic main course.
Classic Christmas Turkey Dish for Main Course by Sophie Grigson
Roasting a turkey dish is always a classic Christmas favourite, and it is very symbolic during the holiday festivities (specially Thanksgiving). As a main course, the Christmas turkey dish should remain beautifully tender, moist and flavourful in order for your family and guests to enjoy it. The trick to roasting turkey perfectly? You will need a large piece of butter muslin to yield a savoury dish.
Christmas Trimmings Options:
Your Christmas trimmings can include the following: Maple-Roast Parsnips, Christmas Apricot and Chestnut Stuffing, and Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts and Shallots with Pomegranate & Purple Basil. Nigella Lawson's maple-roast parsnips recipe is fairly easy to make, with a generous glug of maple syrup making all the difference in the dish. Mary Berry's version of the apricot and chestnut stuffing, however, is definitely one worth making. It takes about an hour to prepare, and can serve up to six people. If your family and guests love greens, then cooking up the pan-fried brussels sprouts recipe is the perfect Christmas trimming of choice. The sourness of the lemon peel and the caramelized garlic savoured in the dish is a sweet addiction.
Dessert Recipe Options:
For a cute take on Christmas dessert, this "Soft Christmas Cookies" recipe by Georgie Bowers is going to be a crowd-favourite.
You can also go for this "Churro Popovers" recipe by Jo Cooks which is a sweet version of Yorkshire puddings due to its sugar and cinnamon ingredients.
Or go for this super fatty "Meringue Cake with Rosewater Cream" dessert recipe by Valli Little for an irresistible take on sugary sweets.
This "Baileys No-Bake Cheesecake" recipe by GoodToKnow is also a satisfying dessert that'll surely entertain your family and guests this Christmas!
And if you're not fond of eating puddings this Christmas, you can feast on this "Raspberry and Coconut Ice-Cream Pud" recipe by Brendon D’Souza which is altogether fresh, tangy and yes, delicious.
