[READ] Gourmet Today December edition online

The October edition of Gourmet Today is now available to read online. 

December has arrived and that can only mean one thing. Christmas is around the corner and it’s time to start getting ready, whether this means Christmas shopping or thinking about what you’re going to eat on the big day. From a culinary perspective Christmas brings a lot of joy where moments of indulgence, which are avoided throughout the year are not only allowed but encouraged.

Our homecooks get festive and prepare an out-of-the-ordinary meal – a roasted duck with figs and chestnuts with a lighter veggie terrine to start and a delicious baked pear for dessert.

At the Mattei household, Christmas hasn’t really started until the fireplace goes on and everyone can sit around roasting chestnuts and catching up. She makes some delicious recipes using this festive ingredient, from a warming chestnut and pumpkin soup to pretty Monts Blancs with chestnut stuffing that can be served individually at a dinner party.

And though the festive season is time for indulgence, choosing the healthier option is still possible on occasion. At Gourmet Today we have put together some of our favourite not-so-guilty sweet treat recipes.
