Have a happy culinary Christmas:  Seven tips from Sugarella..

  1. Prep all of your vegetables the night before… Christmas day is no time for chopping and peeling, thanks very much.
  2. Make sure everyone has a full(ish) glass of champagne!
  3. Make and freeze your bread sauce weeks in advance. Do remember to defrost on Christmas Eve though.
  4. Timing is everything – don’t wing it and guesstimate, unless you want soggy sprouts.
  5. Make pies from your turkey and soups from its stock.
  6. Ensure the carver has experience: nothing more upsetting than a beautifully-cooked bird hacked apart in lumps.
  7. If it all goes wrong, think about booking a #Sugarella cook next year…
