If the fridge is looking a little full at this point, a frozen dessert may be just the ticket instead. Try easy, retro classics like Arctic roll or an ice cream bombe – these highly adaptable desserts can be made with any number of seasonal flavours, perhaps studded with pistachios and cranberries, scented with orange or turned into a chocoholic feast to suit even the most gluttonous of dessert-lovers.
Whatever you’re cooking this Christmas, don’t let the pressure put a dampener on the day. With a little forward planning, you can get the bulk of the work done in advance, leaving you time to eat, drink and be merry when it really matters.
Thanks to chef Andy and everyone at Season for these wonderful hints and tips.
