Top 5 Winter Recipes
Winter is here, the frost has arrived and the New Year is just around the corner. This means, as normal, we are in for a few months of cold weather, rainy showers and dark mornings.
To help combat the wintery weather, here are Kitchen Finesse’s top 5 winter recipes perfect for you and your family:
Loveable Lamb Tagine
Lamb Tagine, a dish that originated in Morocco is the perfect winter dish for any night. Using a tagine dish or simply a pot to slow cook the food in you will get great flavours and tender lamb.
The recipes for this dish all combine sweet, sour and a range of different spices. This twist from BBC Good Food is a Persian take on tagine. Using cumin, coriander, chilli powder, turmeric and saffron this dish is full of flavour, full of spice and full of warmth for that cold winter night.
Perfect Puff Pastry Pies
Any pie topped with puff pastry is a must have for winter. With layers of pastry covering delicious fillings, you can’t go wrong with a winter pie.
This season try a range of different fillings and flavours to really get you in the winter mood. From goat’s cheese and spinach to steak, the range of savoury pies go on and on. But the beauty about them being created in the winter time is there are seasonable vegetables available to use. From butternut squash to potatoes, the pies will both taste fantastic and look great.
If you prefer sweet treats you can try apples and mixed berries which go great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Apple or Berry Crumbles
Crumbles have been a statement winter food for centuries, the warm fruit layer topped with buttery crumble always goes down a treat at dinner parties and family gatherings.
The only thing that can make a classic crumble dish any better is if it is cooked in a brand new Neff Oven. With a range of settings that can cook it perfectly every time, it’s time to get cooking, baking and grilling all your way until summertime.
Marvellous Macaroni and Cheese
The most filling dish on the planet, the cheesiest meal you could ask for and the best thing to enjoy on a cold winters night with a nice glass of wine. Try different cheeses, add different spices and even double bake it if that’s what you want. This can be served hot for an evening meal and really help you forget the winter gales blowing outside.
Chocolate Gingerbread Brownies
These Chocolate Gingerbread Brownies are delicious, indulgent and definitely worth a try. The hint of ginger mixed with the chocolatey brownie mix is truly something you have to try. These will be perfect for any party or treat after the evening meal.
Try serving them warm for the perfect winter pudding.
I think winter time is a great time of year to try out new things in the kitchen with the shorter days and colder weather it is perfect to be cosy in the kitchen.
