HOW TO HAVE A CHRISTMAS LIE-IN

Invest a bit of time preparing this menu and you can stay under the covers a bit longer on Christmas morning (assuming there are no children jumping on your bed begging to open their presents). It has make-ahead canapés for the oven, a one-tray turkey roast and an impressive frozen pud. Bring on the celebrations!

RECIPES & FOOD STYLING OLIVIA SPURRELL PHOTOGRAPHS MAJA SMEND STYLING VICTORIA ELDRIDGE

“So much festive joy is centred around food: fragrant, steaming mugfuls of mulled wine on a chilly evening; platters of cheese and Christmas chutneys around the fire with family; huge tins of chocolates, their sparkling wrappers crackling as you search for your favourite flavour…But on Christmas Day it’s all too easy for the cook to spend hours slogging away in the kitchen perfecting a feast for loved ones, rather than spending quality time with them. It doesn’t need to be that way and, to prove the point, I’ve created the ultimate prep-ahead, pared-back menu. If you’re cooking Christmas lunch and feel daunted at the prospect, this super-organised approached is a brilliant opportunity to give it a go.” OLIVIA SPURRELL, COOKERY ASSISTANT
