Christmas with ready meals, the most convenient option

by Marta Burgués

Once again, we come to one of the most magical times of the year, Christmas, where we gather with family, friends, co-workers…

It’s time for parties and also meetings, endless family and business lunches and dinners in which we usually cook for many people, offering the finest food, and always ending exhausted.

But this year will be different. You will not spend time in the kitchen and you’ll be much more with your guests. What do you think? To have a great success on your Christmas dinner, choose quality and gourmet ready meals; they are a delight for any palate.

It’s best to buy a variety of dishes for everyone to be happy, some of which will be typical of this holidays. One advantage of these dishes is that they are ready in 15 minutes. Simply heat, perhaps seasoning to taste and offer a good presentation with proper utensils. We advise to provide small portions in several dishes as a tasting.

How about start the dinner with a lobster bisque? Totally tempting! You know: Heat and ready. Then we recommend a totally exquisite specialty: beef cheeks with Garnacha sauce, a dish of the Pyrenees which your guests can enjoy with a Rioja red wine, that will certainly fill a lot of tables during the holidays.

And for those who prefer fish, fillet of northern tuna in tomato sauce is a perfect and delicious option which allows to include roasted potatoes or other vegetables you prefer.

To accompany, we can use other less consistent dishes such as pickled quail drumsticks, masked potatoes with black butifarra (typical Catalan), peppers stuffed with partridge, mini chorizos in cider… In short, variety is the spice with these special dishes that you will not have to cook. Do not forget the wines for the Christmas lunch and dinner… and the typical Christmas desserts, and maybe some gifts (you will have to provide them!).
