No comments

With just over a month to go before the big day, many of us are already in full swing with the preparations. As we spend the weeks leading up to the 25th sitting around the Christmas tree or relaxing with a rink or two in the living room, ultimately it is the kitchen that bears the brunt at this time of year.

It is important to consider how ready your kitchen is for Christmas, especially if you’re having people around for the big day. Avoid any last minute purchases, over stressing and wondering how everyone is going to somehow fit around the table for Christmas dinner this year by following our top tips to get your kitchen up to speed for the big day.

DE-CLUTTER YOUR WORKTOPS

Somehow, an array of items and appliances always end up finding a little home on our worktops and although this is okay for anytime of the year, Christmas is definitely an exception. Avoid juggling roast potatoes and sprouts whilst trying to make space for them to rest on your worktop by decluttering and organising the area well ahead of time. Place anything that is not going to be needed away as this will create space for you to prepare your turkey and all of its trimmings.

PREP YOUR OVEN

Give your oven a thorough clean in the days leading up to the big day and this will eliminate any burnt food or residue left in your oven and will ensure that everything is cooked to perfection on Christmas day. A handy tip is to create a baking soda and white vinegar solution and simply sprinkle it on the bottom of the oven. Allow a few minutes for the mixture to and then wipe it away with a soft sponge or cloth.

To keep Christmas dinner as stress free as possible by strategically creating a plan of action. This way, you can avoid careless mistakes that may arise on the day and such issues like finding space on the oven and hob will be a thing of the past. Remember to pre-cook vegetables, roast potatoes and even the gravy ahead so you’re not left cooking everything on Christmas Day.
