SouperChef Anna’s Message | Christmas 2018
I grew up in the company of ‘creators’ — family members who can turn pantry scraps into cosy meals, plain dishes into coveted heirloom recipes. Put a chef in the kitchen and magical things can happen! But while I’m all for reinventing the familiar and breaking the conventions, there is really nothing quite like the old-fashioned classics that comfort and unfold memories. That is why this year, we are celebrating our favourite time of the year with A Feast Of Traditions!
In the curation of our Christmas menu, I dabbled a lot in my home kitchen, recreating festive table scenes that made such indelible impressions on me. I remembered eating creamy, comforting Cauliflower Cheese Gratin at a friend’s Christmas gathering and unabashedly scraping off crusty cheese bits at the corners — that’s the best part!
Then there was one year when my husband and I roasted a chicken so perfectly golden and juicy my beef-loving kids decided it was worth getting their hands greasy. We spent the evening in fellowship with unglamourous grease-stained lips but who’s judging? I don’t bake as much as I cook but it’s hard to forget the unadulterated joy of digging into a cookie jar and packing trays of fresh bakes as Christmas gifts. The children wrote on stickers and stuck them all crooked, but I thought that was charming!
And what’s Christmas without our very own traditions — Christmas SouperChef Specials!
