Get the Most Out of Your Kitchen at Christmas

In any family household, the kitchen is your most hard-wearing, and hard-worn, room. No time is this more true than at Christmas, when the wrangling of the turkey into the oven becomes everyone’s business (that is, until it’s time to tackle the dishes). So how do you fend off the onslaught of muddy footprints, the blizzard of scattered pastry flakes and the endless food preparation that comes with having the family round? Read on for some top household hacks.

When the family arrives

Coffee tables are great for utilising at Christmas, leave out some snacks and starters on them to keep guests in the living room and out of the kitchen (and your hair). Save your surfaces by deploying pretty Christmas trays and table runners – they’re in stores in abundance this year, and will protect your furniture from sticky marks and permanent rings. If you do get a damp mark on the wood, a quick blast from the hairdryer will restore order. You might need to source extra seating around the table for dinner, so if you don’t have matching chairs, buy some Christmas hat chair backs for an instant, uniform look which will delight any little ones in tow.

Most Popular Italian Dishes

Italian cuisine is renowned all around the world for its rich flavours and traditional ingredients. Pasta is without a doubt Italy’s greatest export with a staggering number of us eating it at least once a week! With this in mind, here is a handy guide to some of the most popular Italian dishes.

Spaghetti alla Carbonara - This is one of the most celebrated pasta dishes in the whole of Italy; however it is most prominent in traditional Roman cuisine. The authentic Roman version includes very few ingredients; these being, guanciale (pig’s cheek), pecorino cheese, egg and a generous helping of black pepper. The key to the perfect carbonara is to remove your pan from the heat before adding the egg in order to avoid curdling. Nothing really compares to indulging in this authentic Italian dish in a real Italian restaurant in Rome, so if you are travelling to Rome anytime soon, book your accommodation via pages like this one and head out to try some of that incredibly delicious pasta alla carbonara.
