Cooking for Christmas Away from Home

Have you been left in charge of booking for your group? The prospect of catering for a large party in a property that isn’t your own can feel a little daunting at first glance. We ensure that each of our kitchens are fully kitted out to cater for your guests, however, if you have a question about the kitchen contents to create that perfect dish, then don’t hesitate to get in touch. We have a few tips for surviving the festive season cooking in a kitchen that isn’t your own!

Why not split the meals between each guest or family so that everyone has an evening off? Put the early riser in charge of breakfast prep and the night owl in charge of putting the dishwasher on before bedtime.  

Leave the cooking to someone else entirely and employ the services of the fantastic team at Cottage Food. They will deliver delicious, chef standard meals ready for you to just pop in the oven. Take a glance at a sample menu here
