Everything You Need To Cook & Entertain This Christmas
Created in partnership with LE CREUSET
Want to feel like the ultimate dinner party host this Christmas? Now’s the time to upgrade your cookware. Loved by home cooks, chefs and celebrities alike, Le Creuset is a familiar feature in kitchens around the world. Thanks to its durability, the products are designed to become heirlooms and are often passed down through the generations, making any purchase a lifelong investment (all backed by a reassuring lifetime guarantee on Le Creuset's Cast Iron range).
Here, homes writer and interiors influencer Elle Hervin – @Elle_The_Home_Bird on Instagram – shares her tips and product picks for festive entertaining…
“Whether you love to bake, cook or simply enjoy hosting at Christmas, there’s one thing you won’t want to compromise on – making entertaining as easy and enjoyable as possible. Le Creuset offers plenty of ways to do that, using cookware that becomes a talking point at the table.”
“Christmas is the highlight of any host’s entertaining calendar. Hosting is so much more than chairs around a table – it’s about good food, conversation and beautiful table settings. Le Creuset’s iconic cookware can be the focal point of your Christmas table, with colours that work perfectly with your Christmas décor – especially its Cerise, Meringue and Deep Teal collections. The cookware can be brought straight to the table from the oven or hob without the need for extra dishes and the design means food stays warmer for longer, so everyone can get stuck in.”
“There’s something wonderfully traditional about baking at Christmas, whether it be leafing through a well-thumbed recipe book, experimenting with a new take on festive biscuits or giving a classic pie a seasonal twist. Taking time out to bake in the holidays can be both enjoyable and relaxing – although, if you’re adding a couple of children to the mix, maybe omit the ‘relaxing’ part!”
