Wow the family at Christmas lunch this year; here are some tips for making things extra tasty.

Spuds – Give them a shake in the pan after boiling and before roasting to make them fluffy on the inside

Turkey – Regular basting makes for a moister bird

Sprouts – Eat them outside

Cranberry sauce - Try adding orange zest and juice for a citrus twist. Pear and ginger works well too

Parsnips and carrots – Roast them in honey to keep them sweet. Add garlic and rosemary for flavour
