Recipes for a creative Christmas Day

Those of you who’ve followed my culinary adventures are probably aware that, when it comes to cooking, I’m not always one to stick with the traditional. I’m always experimenting with recipes and ingredients, and I absolutely love to test new ideas.

Turkey has always been a staple dish in my family for our Christmas Day meal, and I’m yet to convince the family to try something entirely different. There really is nothing like a good Turkey-centric plate for the holidays, but if you fancy trying something new this Christmas, and have good persuasion skills, here’s a few creative recipes for your Christmas dinner table:
