From Thanksgiving through to New Year, our kitchens certainly see a lot of use during the holidays. While you might spend a lot of time thinking about your table decorations and dinner services, there are a number of kitchen essentials which can make your Christmas cooking that bit easier.
As well as quality stoneware, porcelain and China, British manufacturers Denby have a fantastic range of cook and bakeware essentials. At large dinner parties, guests tend to help themselves to meat and vegetables, so make sure you have some serving dishes which can go directly from the oven to the dinner table. Not only does this save you time by not having to transfer to another dish, but you’ll save on the washing up at the end of the evening too! Denby’s cookware ranges even perfectly complement their tableware, so you can have a fantastically coordinated table this holiday season!
A few days or weeks before you even think about getting down to any cooking, check you’ve got all the equipment you need. A roaster big enough to hold your meat, a turkey baster, cake tins and a carving tray should be top of your list, but don’t forget the other, smaller essentials like a timer and apron too. Make sure there are plenty of pots, pans and serving dishes to accommodate the amount of food you’re planning – you don’t want to be caught short when the Big Day arrives!
Taking care of these essentials in advance should ensure the festive period runs smoothly and you can relax and enjoy yourself.
