For the most part of the year turkey only seems to feature in stacked sandwiches, brussel sprouts rarely make an appearance on the side of our plates, and mulled wine doesn’t see the light of day. That’s why we’ve collated our favourite Christmas dinner tips and tricks to help you perfect the big day, every year.

If the turkey is browning too hastily, act on it. We suggest loosely covering the meat in our premium foil to avoid overcooking, don’t be afraid to localise your foil placements if certain parts are searing faster than others.

As tantalising as it may be to carve up straight from the oven, we always recommend leaving the cooked turkey under a blanket of foil for 20 minutes. Doing so allows the juices to re-centralise and ensures that the meat is succulent throughout.

Chop, soak and cover your vegetables the night before. Leaving the greens in fresh water helps to keep them fresh and saves valuable time on the big day. We believe Christmas is best spent in the company of your nearest and dearest, not behind a sweltering stove.

Brussel sprouts have forever been the subject of Christmas controversy, but this doesn’t have to be the case for much longer. Place on a baking tray lined with Prowrap professional baking parchment, and season with olive oil, salt, pepper and crushed garlic to taste. Pop them into a preheated oven at 200°C for 35-40 minutes. Golden on the outside tender on the inside, every time.

Let your hair down and put your feet up! After cooking up your storm, relax, rejuvenate, and always have an emergency glass of mulled wine nearby – tis’ the season, after all.
