For me the key to a stress free Christmas feast is preparation. Of course, you can only prepare Christmas day lunch to an extent, which is why Gordon Ramsay’s Christmas day cook along is a fantastic idea.

However, other Christmas treats can be thought out well in advance leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy the festive period oppose to being stuck in the kitchen slaving away.

As Christmas is all about sharing I’ve decided to share my top tips, recipe ideas and handy hints on how to make Christmas as carefree as possible here on my blog. To kick start I thought I’d indulge you with a classic recipe from my favourite chef.

Jamie Oliver’s filo mince pies are a great spin on the classic Christmas time treat. I made these last Christmas and was truly converted to the modern approach. I like to serve my mince pies with a splash of brandy cream.

Top tip: If you’re making mince pies in advance store them in an air tight container or freeze them. Additionally avoid dusting with icing sugar until you’re ready to serve.

Christmas is a great time to spend with family and friends whilst enjoying lovely home comforts. I am posting some of the Greenwood Family’s favourite Christmas time recipes. Largely indulgent and scrumptious and I should add that such are made by my daughter Lucy, who is a wonderfully gifted baker. She has written these recipes which we enjoy greatly and I hope that your family will too.
