We all like a bit of lux at Christmas, but that doesn't mean it has to cost a bomb or that you spend all your time in the kitchen.
We love the idea of 'spendy/savey' - both for time and budget. Choose one big 'wow' dish that you'll spend more time and money on, then fill your festive spread with quick and easy 'table-fillers' everyone will love, to give that feeling of generous abundance.
There is something sensational about freshly baked bread - and if it's brioche, then it gets even better. The smoked salmon and creme fraiche make it a bit fancy, but it's another great crowd-pleaser. So, think of it as a centrepiece for a brunch or breakfast (and savour any leftovers, toasted with poached eggs, the next day!). Find the recipe in the link below.
