There’s no denying that Christmas Day is a magical time for any family. It’s the one occasion during the year when everyone makes that extra special effort to be with each other. Loved ones share stories about what has happened during the previous twelve months. Those who see each other regularly reminisce about the memorable moments they may have shared, while family members who see each other rarely play catch up on everything they’ve achieved and experienced.
And then there is the Christmas lunch menu. Given the hot summer weather, an Australian Christmas feast usually consists of seafood such as lobsters and prawns; steaks and marinated chicken cooked to perfection on the barbecue; a variety of baked vegetables and colourful seasonal salads; and decadent desserts including lamingtons, pavlova and fruit salads with lashings of fresh whipped cream.
Of course, there is just one problem with preparing the Christmas lunch menu for the whole family – the hours spent preparing, cooking and cleaning that could be better spent with family and friends! Shopping for ingredients, spending your Christmas Eve preparing food, then cooking everything the following day so each dish is timed perfectly can be an incredibly stressful experience. And if there are a few budding ‘Matt Prestons’ in the family who think they should be the resident Masterchef food critic, that only adds to the tension and anxiety! And even if everything does go to plan and the compliments far outweigh the criticisms, you’ll be stuck with hours of cleaning work when all you want to do is put your feet up with a nice glass of red.
