#Lovefood

We caught up with YouTube star Tanya Burr to share her fave bakes and foodie ideas to help you step into Christmas

Welcome! ‘I’m Tanya Burr, a 28-year-old lifestyle blogger, and baking is a huge part of my life, especially at Christmas. ‘This is my favourite time of year as it combines all the things I love most – cosy nights in, spending time with loved ones, parties, and surprises! ‘There’s nothing better than dancing around the kitchen to Wizzard’s I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday while making an enormous batch of muffins and cookies that fill the house with their spicy scent. So it’s exciting to share a few of my favourite festive tips, picks and recipes with you – from edible gifts to perfect roasties’ ‘I hope you enjoy them and wish you all a magical Christmas!’ Follow Tanya on… Twitter @tanyaburr Instagram @tanyaburr YouTube – Tanya Burr

crafty-cute Melting snowman cookies

‘Whatever your age, you’ll love these cute cookies – a brilliant edible crafts project for children. They’re easy to make and such fun to decorate. I’m obsessed with marshmallows, so their faces make me very happy, too.’ Find Tanya’s recipe at ASDA.GL /snowmen

‘Baking a snowman cake is easy with this brilliant tin from Asda. Everyone will want a slice of the action!’ COOL CHARACTERS TO MELT YOUR HEART

Snowman Metal Tin Mould, £3

STICKY SITUATION ‘This onion marmalade is delicious with baked Camembert or ham, or put in a pretty jar to give as a homemade gift. Fry chopped onions in a little oil, cover with a lid and heat on low for 30 mins or until softened. Add a good sprinkling of sugar and sweet chilli sauce to taste, then cook for 30 mins more until most of the moisture is gone. Allow to cool then add a good splash of apple cider vinegar and a squeeze of balsamic vinegar. Heat again until sticky and thick. Transfer to sterilised jars and keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.’


FOOD

Fancy florentines

TANYA’S TOP TIPS

Brilliant roasties When I roast potatoes, I often add sprigs of rosemary and garlic cloves and I always make them with goose fat – it gives the best texture and taste. Peel the potatoes the night before and leave them in a big pan of cold water. The next day, drain and replace the water, parboil the potatoes, drain, toss in melted goose fat to coat, then roast.

Q

‘I bake my way through December, making treats to share and give as presents. I adore being in the kitchen, cooking and hanging out with friends – it’s the perfect antidote to the stressful side of the festive season. ‘I always love a recipe that can be flexible, such as these florentines. Make them as after-dinner petits fours, a teatime treat or bag them up, wrap with a bow and give them as a sweet gift – I’d be very happy to receive these!’ Find Tanya’s recipe at ASDA.GL/florentines

SO PRETTY – AND SO DELICIOUS…

Ask Tanya...

Q

My sister is joining us for Christmas and has recently become a vegetarian. What impressive main can I serve her? Melissa Thomas, Manchester ‘Even meat-eaters love a good veggie roast – my brother-in-law’s Mushroom, Spinach & Blue Cheese Wellington is delicious! It has a lovely texture that works well with the classic trimmings, too – and the filling can be made ahead and frozen until you’re ready to cook it.’ Visit ASDA.GL/wellington for the full recipe. Or try Extra Special Butternut Squash Wellington with Long Clawson Stilton, £5 (320g; £1.56/100g).

My son, eight, and daughter, six, refuse to eat Brussels sprouts. How can I jazz up my sprouts to tempt them? Caroline Evans, Cardiff ‘It can be so hard getting children to eat sprouts. I find the best way to make them more appetising for kids – and adults – is to roast them with butter and add chestnuts or bacon. You can even sprinkle on pomegranate seeds, which give a lovely sweetness and make the dish look pretty as well!’ Alternatively, try this delicious Extra Special Brussels Sprouts Emmental Gratin, £2.50 (400g; 63p/100g).

Pea soup with Parmesan ‘coral’

‘This soup is so quick and simple that I had to add a touch of flair with the Parmesan ‘coral’. It has a stunning vibrant green colour and tastes phenomenal – great to keep you going throughout the winter!’ SERVES 1 READY IN 25 MINS l Big handful frozen peas l 10g grated Parmesan l ½ vegetable stock cube

1 Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. 2 Bring a pan of water to the boil and simmer the peas for 3-4 mins. 3 While the peas are cooking, pile the grated Parmesan on a nonstick baking tray so that, when it melts together, it will form a crisp shaped like delicate lacy coral. Cook in the oven for about 5 mins until melted but not browned. Gently peel the Parmesan ‘coral’ off the baking tray and leave it to cool and harden. 12 | ASDA.COM/GROCERIES

4 Meanwhile, drain the peas (keeping a mugful of the cooking water) and blitz them in a blender or food processor, along with the stock cube and about half the mug of reserved water until smooth. Season and, depending on the consistency you want, add a little more water to thin the soup. 5 Serve the soup in a bowl with the Parmesan ‘coral’ on the side and a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper to garnish.

Fisherman’s pie

‘Frozen fish is the key to the simplicity of this dish – just chop it and throw it in straight from the freezer. The result is a beautiful, creamy sauce with a vibrant pea mash and crunchy topping.’ SERVES 1 READY IN 40 MINS l 1 potato, peeled and

l 25g breadcrumbs

(3-day-old bread, blitzed or grated)

1 Preheat your oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. 2 Put the potato in a pan, cover with water, bring to the boil then simmer until tender. Add the peas and bring back to the boil. Drain, then return to the

pan. Mash the potato and peas with a drizzle of the olive oil and season with black pepper. 3 Meanwhile, pan-fry the onion in a little of the olive oil over a medium heat – cook for 2-3 mins until soft but not browned. Season well with black pepper and add the flour. Stir for 1 min then slowly add the milk, stirring continuously, to create a sauce. 4 Cut the frozen fish fillet into bite-sized chunks using a serrated knife and add them to the sauce. Simmer for 5 mins to thaw the fish, then transfer

the mixture to a small ovenproof dish. Spoon the mash over the fish filling. 5 In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with the remaining olive oil, a good grind of black pepper and the crushed garlic clove. Scatter them over the mash to create the crunchy topping. 6 Cook the pie in the oven for about 20 mins, until the crumb topping turns golden brown and the filling is piping hot.

Naked Black Forest gateau

Velvety chocolate cake layered with thick cream and juicy cherries – iconic with a modern twist SERVES 30 READY IN 45 MINS, PLUS SOAKING AND COOLING PRICE PER SERVING 44p

FOR THE FILLING ● 350g pack Frozen for Freshness Morello Cherries ● 100ml Bols Cherry Brandy Liqueur FOR THE CAKE ● 350g softened butter, plus extra for greasing ● 350g caster sugar ● 6 eggs ● 250g self-raising flour ● 100g cocoa powder ● 60ml milk TO DECORATE ● 400ml double cream 26 | ASDA.COM/GROCERIES

● 2tbsp icing sugar ● 200g fresh cherries

1 Soak the cherries in the liqueur for at least 1 hr – or ideally overnight. 2 Preheat the oven to 180C/ 160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line 3 x 20cm cake tins. Beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy, then whisk in the eggs, one by one. If the mixture looks as if it has split, add 1-2tsp of the flour as you go. 3 Fold in the flour and

cocoa, and stir in the milk. Divide the mixture between the 3 tins. Bake for 25 mins – a skewer inserted in the sponges should come out clean. Cool for 5 mins in the tins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 4 Just before serving, whip the cream and icing sugar until it just comes together in very soft peaks. Don’t overwhip or it will become grainy. Strain the soaked cherries, reserving the brandy. 5 Place one of the sponges on a cake stand. Drizzle with one third of the brandy then spread one third of the whipped cream right to the edges. Dot with half of the

soaked cherries, then add another sponge. Repeat with the brandy, cream and remaining soaked cherries, then add the final sponge. Drizzle with the remaining brandy, then spread the top with the cream and, using a large spatula, scrape around the sides until smooth. 6 Decorate with the fresh cherries. Serve immediately or chill until required. TIP Make the cake layers 3-4 days ahead and store in an airtight container. Or keep the assembled cake in the fridge for up to 2 days.

1 Take the turkey from the fridge 1 hr before cooking. Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C Fan/Gas 6. 2 Juice 1 lemon (reserve the halves). Mix with 50g butter. Fry the 3 shallots in the other 25g butter for 4 mins. 3 Put the turkey breast-side up in a roasting tin. Fill the cavity with the shallots, 2 halved lemons and 2 halved limes. Secure the skin with a cocktail stick. Lift the skin at the neck, rub some lemon butter on the meat and the rest on the skin and legs. 4 Arrange the bacon on the breast. Cover loosely with foil. Calculate the cooking time – for birds over 4kg, allow 20 mins per kg, plus 90 mins. Cook for 40 mins. Reduce oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Baste every 1 hr. 5 Mix the cinnamon and syrup. Brush on the skin and bacon 30 mins before the end. Return the bird to the oven, with the extra citrus and shallots for garnish, if using. Cook, uncovered, until done. To test, pierce the thickest part of the thigh – the juices should run clear. If pink, roast for 15 mins and check until done. 6 Tilt the turkey to let any juices run into the tin. Put it on a platter, cover in foil and a tea towel, and leave to rest for at least 30 mins. 7 For the gravy, skim any fat from the juices then stir in the flour. Cook on the hob for 4 mins, stirring, then stir in the stock. Simmer. Pour into a gravy boat. 8 Serve the bird with the gravy and garnishes. Each 156g serving contains: ENERGY

and line your ramekins). Arrange on a baking tray lined with baking paper. 2 Whizz the biscuits in a processor to fine crumbs, or put in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin. Mix with the butter and divide between the rings. Push down with the back of a spoon. Cool in the fridge. 3 Meanwhile, put the milk in a pan. Halve the vanilla pod and scrape the seeds into the milk. Bring to the boil over a medium heat; remove from the heat. 4 In a bowl, mix together the eggs, 120g of the sugar

and the cornflour. Gradually whisk in the milk to create a smooth custard. Pour into a clean pan and bring to the boil, on a low-to-medium heat, stirring continuously until smooth and thick. Remove from the heat, pour into a piping bag and leave the custard to cool fully. 5 Pipe the custard to thinly cover each biscuit base. 6 Set 8 strawberries aside. Remove the stalks from the remaining strawberries, trim so they are the same height and cut in half. 7 Position the strawberries on the custard base with the cut sides against the chef rings. Pipe in the rest of the custard, filling in the gaps between the strawberries, and smooth over the tops. Cover with

clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 2 hrs. 8 Over a medium heat, dissolve the remaining 60g sugar in a pan, swirling occasionally. Increase the heat, allowing the sugar to turn to a dark caramel. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 2 mins. 9 Tilt the pan and dip the strawberries in the caramel. Put on a lined baking tray and allow the remaining caramel to cool slightly. 10 Carefully remove the puds from the chef rings and peel off the paper. Top each cake with a carameldipped strawberry and serve immediately. Each 209g serving contains: ENERGY

Wrap in the paper and freeze for 30 mins – this will make slicing easier. 3 Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.

Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. 4 Slice the pastry roll into 12 and arrange the swirls on the baking trays, spaced well apart. Bake for 15 mins or until golden brown and well risen. 5 Meanwhile, put 100g icing sugar and ½tsp almond essence in a bowl. Stir in just enough water to make a thick icing. Drizzle a little over each swirl and serve warm. Each 43g serving contains: ENERGY

Snow globe meringue gateau

Meringue, coconut and creamy white chocolate topped with a sugar-glass globe decoration SERVES 26 READY IN 3 HRS, PLUS OVERNIGHT RESTING PRICE PER SERVING 34p ● 6 egg whites ● 225g icing sugar, plus

extra for decoration

● Green food colouring ● 6 Matchmakers ● Small shimmer or

silver cake decoration balls (optional) ● 1tsp vegetable oil ● 515g caster sugar ● ½tsp vanilla extract ● 1tsp white wine vinegar ● 1tsp cornflour ● 175g desiccated coconut ● 200g white chocolate ● 140g pack Dr. Oetker Liquid Glucose ● 500ml double cream ● 250ml bottle Innocent Totally Tropical Smoothie ● 225g raspberries ● You will also need a round balloon and a sugar thermometer 1 Start by making the trees. Whisk 1 egg white until soft peaks form. Whisk in the icing sugar until the mixture is stiff, smooth and glossy. Stir in green food colouring 1 drop at a time, to get your desired shade. Spoon the icing into a piping bag fitted with a small star nozzle. 2 On baking paper, draw 3 triangles, 10cm tall x 6cm at the base. Lay a Matchmaker down the centre of each triangle, for a trunk. Starting at the top, pipe from side to side, following the triangle template, to create a fir tree shape over the trunk. Repeat to make 6 trees – 64 | ASDA.COM/GROCERIES

vary the sizes for a natural look. Dot with shimmer balls, if using. Dry overnight. 3 For the meringue cake, preheat the oven to 190C/ 170C Fan/Gas 5. Grease 2 x 18cm loose-bottom cake tins and 1 deep, 15cm, loosebottom tin with ½tsp oil, then line with baking paper. 4 Whisk the remaining egg whites until stiff. Gradually add 315g caster sugar, 1tbsp at a time, whisking until the mixture is stiff and glossy. Whisk in the vanilla, vinegar, cornflour and coconut. 5 Divide equally between the tins, level and bake for 30 mins until the meringue is crisp and pale gold. Turn out and cool on a wire rack. 6 For the shards, melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water – don’t let the base of the bowl touch the water. Pour onto a sheet of baking paper and top with another sheet. Spread the chocolate in a thin layer between the 2 sheets of paper, then roll it all into a tube. Chill until set. 7 For the globe, grease the rim and outside of a small bowl, 3-5cm wide, with the other ½tsp oil. Place upright on a sheet of baking paper. 8 Fill a balloon with about 1.5L water, to around 13cm in diameter. Squeeze the open end to release any air bubbles, then tie a knot in it and position the balloon, knot-side down, in the bowl so it bulges over the rim. 9 Put the remaining 200g caster sugar, liquid glucose

and 50ml water into a pan. Place over a low heat and dissolve the sugar, swirling the pan occasionally. Use a wet pastry brush to brush off any sugar that sticks to the sides of the pan. 10 When all the sugar has dissolved, increase the heat slightly and simmer for 5-7 mins or until the sugar syrup reaches 150C* – test with a sugar thermometer. If it looks like it is starting to caramelise, reduce the heat. 11 Pour the sugar over the top of the balloon, using a circular motion so it covers it fully, then leave to set for 15 mins or until rock solid. 12 Place the bowl and the balloon in an empty sink. With scissors, gently snip off the knot. Let the water drain away down the sink. 13 Remove the balloon and trim any thin, ragged edges off the base of the globe – take care not to crack or smudge the ‘glass’. Set aside in a cool, dry place until needed – do not refrigerate. 14 To assemble, whip the cream and the smoothie

together into soft peaks. Stack the meringues on a cake board with the smallest one on top, sandwiching the layers together with half the cream and the raspberries. Spread the remaining cream all over the top and sides. 15 Unwrap the chocolate roll and snap into 10cm shards. Arrange around the layers, sticking them onto the cream coating. 16 Push 3 trees into the top of the cake. Arrange the rest around it – press them into the cream so they stand up. Dust the board with icing sugar. Balance the dome on its side in front of the trees – secure with icing if needed – to create the look of a perfect globe when the cake is viewed from the front. Dust with icing sugar for a snowy effect. (Please note, the sugar-glass globe is for decoration only and should not be eaten.) Each 77g serving contains: ENERGY
