Christmas in 2021 is a time when friends and family come together to celebrate and connect over sumptuous meals and festive drinks. After a long year of hard work , endless waves and the Covid rampage…it’s a time to relax, restore, heal and reflect, enjoying the company of those we love. That said, having the family together can also be a little chaotic, and planning Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day lunch can sometimes feel more frantic than fun. If you’re anything like me cooking for hours in the kitchens is an absolute Nah! I believe in thinking of a simple, but fantastic menu that can be made with ease. Nothing ensures that ease than the new Forage and Feast range at Checkers…with skillfully trimmed roasts, classic glazes, and masterfully prepared side dishes, you can create a stunning and unique Christmas lunch, elegant supper, or backyard braai.
We started with a Forage And Feast Turkish Fig Balsamic reduction drizzled and strawberries baked Camembert, severed with a toasted french baguette.
Followed by the nourishing and scrumptious main – a decadent potato gratin, roasted parmesan lemon garlic broccoli – served along the delicious Forage and Feast stuffed roasted chicken.
Deck your table with the tastiest Christmas delicacies and get ready for the sweetest finish. And you will definitely find that in the Forage and Feast cheesecake, a litle bits like the dark chocolate coated cherries and the dark chocolate with roasted almonds.
Whether you’re hosting a little family gathering or a large family gathering, Checkers has you covered!
