However you’re spending the festive season, we’d like to wish you a very Happy Christmas. We gathered some of the Kalm Kitchen team together for a little glimpse into how we’ll be celebrating this year…
//Q: What’s your favourite Christmas cocktail?
Lara: It has to be a Pornstar Martini: Vanilla-infused vodka with passion fruit, shaken over ice with vanilla sugar and passion fruit puree.
Lily: Espresso Martini for me: A blend of vodka, freshly brewed espresso, Kahlua and coffee beans over ice. Delicious!
//Q: What Christmas canapés will you be serving up this year?
Emily: Can’t beat the Kalm Kitchen mini blue cheese oatcakes with walnut chutney – so festive.
Lara: Beetroot cured salmon on horseradish blinis are amazing alongside a glass of fizz.
//Q: What’s your ultimate Christmas day side dish?
Jen: Has to be Brussels sprouts tossed with chestnuts.
Lily & Lara: (*said in chorus, enthusiastically) Bread sauce!
Emily: It’s all about the stuffing. My family do a twist on sage and onion with sausage meat, which is so delicious.
//Q: What do you always cook up on Boxing Day?
Jen: Simple – I just graze on all the leftover cheese, all day long!
Emily: Our tradition is to have the leftover ham alongside a big, creamy, delicious Dauphinoise.
Lily: Cold bread sauce, it’s my guilty pleasure!
//Q: Favourite Christmas song?
Lily: Last Christmas by Wham.
Lara: All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey.
Emily: Anything by Michael Bublé – the absolute Christmas playlist.
//Q: Which movie will you definitely be watching over the Christmas season?
Emily Love Actually
Lily: Home Alone
Louisa: The Holiday
//Q: What’s your favourite Christmas chocolate?
Lara: Oh, it’s all about the white chocolate.
Emily: Give me a Chocolate Orange!
Lily: I love a Toblerone.
//Q: And finally, what’s on your Christmas wish list?
Lily: An old-school Polaroid camera.
Emily: I’ve asked for a teal Le Creuset casserole pot.
