Christmas masterplan

Festive co oking do esn’t have to b e stressful. Follow our plan for getting ahea d, so you c an enjoy the celebrations

3-4 weeks ahead Figure out how many people

you’re hosting for Christmas dinner and check the dietary needs of your guests, noting any specific requirements, allergies or intolerances they may have.

Decide on your menu for

the big day, then put together a shopping list. Remember to include everything you need for the main meal, from starter to pud, and any extras you want to buy for a special brunch, nibbles or evening treats. Don’t forget non-perishable items, such as kitchen roll, napkins, Christmas crackers and candles.

Order your shopping online

or in store and book the delivery or collection slot at a time to suit you. Check p3 for full details on dates and timings.

2 weeks to go Shop for your wine and any

other drink you need. Either buy in store or add it to your online Tesco Festive Food order.

Carry out a quick stock check of your cooking kit and serving ware. Do you have all the pans, trays and dishes you need? You may need to buy an extra-large roasting tin and foil if you’re cooking a large, whole turkey.

If you’re lacking enough glasses for parties, pick up some great plastic alternatives in store.

1 week to go Make a timing plan for

Christmas day. Work back from the time you’d like to sit down and eat the main meal. Factor in cooking times for the sides as well as how long it will take to prepare and serve the starter and main course. Also remember that, after cooking your turkey, you’ll also need to cover it with foil and give it at least 30 minutes resting time.

If you have a large group

coming, work out a seating plan. You might want to divide up couples and siblings, so that people have the opportunity to sit next to family and friends they might not have seen or spoken to in a while. You could even ask the kids to help by making place-name cards for the festive table.

Organise your fridge and

freezer so you have enough space to accommodate your Christmas food. If you have lots of beer and wine bottles taking up shelf space in the fridge, keep them in a cupboard and chill them in buckets with ice for a few hours before you need them.

1-2 days to go If you have a frozen turkey, remember to defrost it in the fridge for about 24 hours (don’t forget to bring it up to room temperature before you cook).

The big day is almost here.

Collect your Festive Food order from your nearest Tesco store.

Once you know the size of

your turkey, double check that it will fit in your oven. If you’re worried space might be a problem, see our tips (p13) for ways to work around this.

Christmas Eve  If you have enough cutlery

and crockery, and won’t need to use it in the morning, then lay the table for dinner. Check your Christmas day timing plan and make any last minute changes if you need to.

 Put any prepped food on covered trays in the fridge, ready for cooking. To save even more time, try the Ready to Cook Fresh Vegetable Selection (p27). Pour yourself a glass of something festive and relax, ready to welcome your guests the next day.

To check if your turkey is cooked, insert a kitchen thermometer between the breast and the leg, being careful not to touch the bone. If it reads 70°C for two minutes, then it’s done. If it doesn’t reach this temperature, put the bird back in the oven for another 15 minutes and retest; repeat until you have the right temperature. If you don’t have a thermometer, insert a skewer between the breast and the leg and check that the juices run clear, with no signs of pink.

Top turkey tips Follow our guide to prepa ring a nd c a r ving your bird with conf ide nce

1

What size?

Look for advice on serving sizes on the product pack or follow our quick guide below: Weight kg

Serves

2.5-4.49 4.5-5.99 6-7.49 7.5-9

6-10 11-14 15-18 19-22

2

Temperature

Bring your turkey up to room temperature by taking it out of the fridge one hour (no more than two) before cooking. If frozen, leave the bird in the fridge overnight to fully defrost, then bring to room temperature. (Check your pack for the defrost time as it will differ depending on the size.)

3

Prepping

Prepare your turkey by removing the neck and giblets, if they’re included. You can reserve them for your gravy. Don’t wash the bird under the tap as this can spread harmful bacteria. Rub the outside with butter or oil for a golden skin.

4

Stuffing

You can make your stuffing ahead of time and it’s a great way to use up stale bread. Add lemon zest and herbs for

a citrus twist. Alternatively, try one of our superb range of ready-made stuffings that come in convenient foil trays.

9

5

Cooking

As a general rule, for birds below 5kg, allow 20 minutes per kg plus 80 minutes at gas 4, 180°C, fan 150°C. For birds over 5kg, allow 20 minutes per kg plus 105 minutes. See tesco.com/ realfood or your pack for a timing guide. If you’re planning on stuffing your bird, only stuff the neck, not the cavity, and weigh your turkey after the stuffing has been added to get the right cooking time.

6

When done

Resting

Put the bird on a board, tenting loosely in foil, and leave it to sit for 30 minutes or so. This allows the meat to reabsorb the juices, so you get the tenderest results.

10 Carving

Downsizing

If your turkey is too large for your oven, try removing the legs (see right). If it’s still too big, cut it in half by chopping through the middle of the breast bone, then spread the portions out on a baking tray to roast.

7

1 Using a sharp knife, carefully remove the legs by carving through the natural joint between the leg and breast.

2 Separate the drumstick from the thigh – feel for the joint, then use the point of the knife to carefully cut through.

3 Cut the turkey thigh in half to serve guests or slice the meat parallel to the bone. Leave the drumsticks whole or carve down the length.

4 Slice the breast meat by holding your knife at a slight angle and carve diagonally downwards. Arrange the slices of turkey on a platter to serve.

Basting

Basting helps crisp the skin and ensures the breast doesn’t dry out during cooking. Once the turkey has started giving off its juices, spoon them over the bird, every 40 minutes or so, typically two or four times, depending on your bird’s size. Work quickly, so that the turkey and oven don’t cool down.

Host with the most Whatever kind of par t y you’re planning, these are our top 10 tips for a stress-fre e gathering

1

The space

Start by working out how many people are attending. Where will they be congregating? Move some furniture from the centre of the room to create space for guests to stand and chat, and arrange two tables at the side – one for plates, cutlery and platters of food, so that guests can help themselves, and another for using as a drinks station.

2

The essentials

Carry out a stock check of your glassware, crockery and cutlery, and borrow any additional items you may need. Make sure you have a good selection of napkins and dot them around the room in piles, as guests will be eating mostly with their fingers.

3

The menu

A good, general rule of thumb is to allow five to six bites per person, per hour (although people do tend to slow their consumption after the first hour) and plan your menu accordingly. Also consider what time of day you’re hosting; if it’s over a mealtime, then guests will be expecting to fill up a bit more than at other times.

4

The right balance Try to serve guests a mix of protein and carbohydrate-based

snacks, lighter and richer food, and vegetarian options. It’s a good idea to include a mix of cold and hot canapés, to save you running to and from the oven all evening. For larger groups, an easy-to-serve centrepiece, such as a ham or side of salmon, with a few more buffet items, is a great way to bump up your menu without too much extra work.

5

8

Judge drinks quantities by looking at how many guests are attending and the time of day. As a rough guide, a bottle of wine or Champagne provides about six glasses. A 1.5-litre cocktail jug will serve around eight people and a 330ml bottled beer is equivalent to half a pint.

Feed a crowd

The back-up plan

Have a stash of party products in the freezer that cook straight from frozen, so you can whip out delicious food if unexpected guests arrive; our finest* Prawn Party Food Selection (p41) is ideal. If you don’t need them all, just keep in the freezer until the next party or gathering.

6

The setting

In addition to the main food table, put out snacks at various points around the room, so you don’t create a bottleneck in just one area and guests always have something to nibble on.

7

The nibbles

Circulate canapés on a mix of trays, boards and large platters. Solid wood chopping boards are particularly good for adding rustic charm when presenting cold meats, cheeses and breads.

The drinks

For a ready-made party menu with all you need to feed 20 people, plus more festive menu ideas, turn to our special pull-out section.

9

The spirits

A self-service cocktail bar is fun but can also be expensive. If you want to serve mixed drinks, make up a few jugs of punch, which can be padded out with cheaper mixers but still taste delicious. They can also be made in advance an hour before the guests arrive – just add ice when you’re ready to serve. Try our great jug-cocktail recipes on p46.

10

The serve

Get creative with how you serve your drinks.

Tea cups or a mix of vintage glasses all look great. You can decorate cocktail glasses with edible glitter – wet the rim with lemon juice, then dip in the glitter. Or try jazzing up your ice cubes by freezing fresh herbs with water in ice-cube trays, or whole grapes in freezer bags. Add them to the cocktail jug when you’re ready to serve your guests.
