Carol Makins & Heather Jeary – Preparing for Christmas

Christmas can be a stressful time in the kitchen… so now is the time to prepare ahead for the festive season, leaving time to enjoy the celebrations with the family. One of the easiest ways of doing this, is to use recipes that can be frozen until needed, or baked and final touches added when taken from the freezer.

Join us on zoom from Evelyn Suffield House as we prepare some festive fare for the coming season.
