Entertaining, Martha Stewart – the words have been synonymous for years. The lifestyle expert’s perfectly executed dishes are the inspiration of budding chefs across the world, her holiday decorating ideas have launched a thousand DIY attempts and her artistry for decorating and gardening has assured and calmed the anxious minds of new homeowners and home restorers over the years. So, who better to turn to for Christmas recipe ideas than the grand master herself? Here Martha shares her favourite Martha Stewart Living items for creating the perfect festive feast.
“The stakes and pressure can feel high when hosting a Christmas dinner, but it doesn’t need to be this way,” Martha explains,” With thoughtful planning, and a few of the crowd-pleasing recipes shared below, you can pull off an impressive feast without getting stuck in the kitchen during all the fun.”
“It’s also important to remember that holiday entertaining has just as much to do with being in good company as it does making sure the cloth napkins are folded to precision. It’s all about that extra touch, that extra effort put forth to dazzle guests. That’s why you are hosting, to do a little bit extra for your friends, family, and colleagues.”
