Christmas Dining Inspiration

Tuesday, 10 November 2015 09:45:30 Europe/London

Christmas dinner is when family comes together, you eat delicious food, and indulge in Christmassy treats. But there is no doubt about the importance of our dining tables looking the part too. Today’s theme for the dinner table will be a fabulous Winter Wonderland style.

There is no doubt about the beauty of baubles and saying that, they certainly feel at home as the centrepiece of your Christmas dining table. Placed in a glass vase, on a cake stand for a more rustic setting, or naturally hanging on our small centrepiece tree they certainly would add a touch of elegance and sparkle to your table. Add some candles along the central table runner, and you have a simple, but elegant Christmas dining setting.

Why not surprise everyone and add a little gift to everyone’s setting too?

We hope you've found a little Christmassy inspiration today.

Until next time,

Kelly

Winter Vegetable Soup

Ingredients:


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 25g (1oz) butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 125g (4½ oz) leeks, rinsed and sliced
  • 280g (10oz) parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 400g (14oz) carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large potato, peeled and chopped
  • 900ml (1 pint 12fl oz) vegetable stock
  • 4-5 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk (optional)
  • Salt, black pepper and freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

 

Method:


  1. Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and leeks and cook, stirring, over a medium heat, for 4-5 minutes until soft. Add the parsnips, carrots and potato and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Pour in the stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 20-25 minutes until all the vegetables are tender.
  3. Transfer to a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Return to the saucepan and pour in a little milk to thin, if needed. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg, then stir in the parsley.
  4. Reheat gently, then transfer to warmed bowls. Serve with bread.

 

 

Or if it’s too much work, pop into our café and enjoy a bowl of our organic soup prepared fresh for you.

 


Until next time,

So it’s that time of year again – Christmas is coming around, and we’re trying to make our homes feel as wintery, and as Christmassy as possible. From something subtle like a tea light holder, to something less subtle like stag cushions, or a lampshade – there is something to suit every type of home this winter.

 

Our Zinc Tea Light Candle Holders would make the perfect addition to a mantelpiece.
