Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Gingerbread

Gingerbread is a fantastic Christmas treat. It tastes amazing and it is also great fun to make and is something you can involve the whole family with. Whether you are getting some help with the mixing and rolling or cutting shapes and decorating they’re as fun to make as they are to eat!

Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Sprouts

Brussel sprout, you are sentenced to being boiled to within an inch of your life on Christmas day. Our executive chef Paul Macnish shows us how to overcome the tradition of overcooked, bad smelling sprouts and then take them to a whole new level. Even if you don’t like them, still do them Paul’s way so they at least look great on the table this Christmas. But rest assured, you’ll agree they’re delicious.

Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Carrots

Without a doubt, carrots are a firm favourite at any meal. They’re likely to be one of the most popular vegetables and their versatility sees them in dishes from cake to Sunday roast. One meal they certainly can’t be missed is Christmas lunch.

Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Roast Parsnips

Roast Parsnips have a similar relationship with our menus as Brussel sprouts; they come out once a year and are cooked as a traditional courtesy. They’re not a nod to a time gone by, their sweet taste is a robust flavour to add to any meal.

Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Bloody Mary

When it comes to flavour, there aren’t many drinks that pack the punch of a Bloody Mary. If your entertaining this Christmas and you’d like to include something extra special for your drinks menu then show off with this and you’ll be sure to impress.

Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Bread Sauce

As well as being a tasty accompaniment to your Christmas lunch, bread sauce is the butter for your sandwiches the next day. Like cranberry sauce, this is another really easy recipe and you’ll find it is better than a packet or jar if you prepare your own.

Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Mulled Wine

Mulled wine can be bought ready-made, however, make it yourself and the flavour, sweetness and quality is in your hands. If you have never made your own mulled wine before, then Christmas 2016 just had an upgrade because we’re going to show you how to do it yourself.

Knowsley Hall Christmas Lunch 2016 Cranberry Sauce

Served with a variety of dishes, cranberry sauce is a great accompaniment to Christmas lunch. If you have never made your own then this Christmas is a great opportunity to give it a bash. It is a really simple sauce to make and you probably won’t buy a jar of it again once you have made your own.
