ESSENTIAL EATS: Well-Loved Christmas Recipes from our Bower Team
A CHRISTMAS TABLE LADEN WITH TRADITIONAL FAVOURITES AND SOME JUST-DISCOVERED NEW RECIPES IS SUCH PURE DELIGHT SO WE THOUGHT WE’D SHARE A FEW OF THE TASTY TREATS THAT’LL BE GRACING THE BOWER TEAM’S TABLES ON THE DAY.
From The Bower’s owner/creative there’s a super moist Rosewater and Pistachio Cake with hints of Summer freshness provided by pomegranate, mint and lemon. It’s a recipe from her dear friend, Jody Vassallo, food stylist, recipe writer and author, whose food ethos provides a quiet argument for the power of genuinely nutritious food to heal, nourish and restore, inside and out. Property Manager Danelle, provides her recipe for a super-simple Christmas cake, choked full of fruit and a hint – or more if you choose – of brandy which should be accompanied with a cuppa, a glass of eggnog or a balloon of good quality brandy. And for a main dish, Marketing Comms Creative Georgia shares her latest go-to recipe for Crispy Pork Belly from her all-time fav cook, Donna Hay. It’s served with a tangy spiced plum sauce and the fight is always on for the last piece of crunchy, salty crackling.
