In Nadiya’s Party Feasts – Christmas Special: Nadiya Hussain is throwing a celebration – and everyone is invited. With the party season fast approaching, Nadiya shares her favourite festive dishes that fill the table with vibrant colour, amazing aromas and fantastic flavours. She is making the perfect food to hand around and share, like melt-in-the-mouth halloumi chips, smoked mackerel pate choux and sticky lamb ribs.
She is also preparing a hearty dive-in dish of beef chilli and jalapeno corn bread and some vibrant salads – brussels sprout slaw and pomegranate and parsley tabbouleh. And a party wouldn’t be a party without some fantastic desserts, and Nadiya’s chocolate eclair roll and passion fruit bundt will keep the guests coming back for more.
Nadiya also meets people around the country who have their own special reasons to rustle up a celebration. She joins a group of school children in Staffordshire as they deliver a big thank you to 95-year-old volunteer Jack, lends a hand to Gilly, who is preparing one of her spectacular homemade trifles, and helps bake an extra special cake for the surprise birthday party of twin sisters Sonia and Sunita.
Nadiya’s Party Feasts – Christmas Special
1. Lamb ribs
Lamb ribs don’t need to be done low and slow like other meat ribs, and the sweet sticky sauce here packs a punch.
2. Pomegranate and parsley tabbouleh
A fresh and vibrant couscous salad will bring a bit of zing to your party, barbecue or picnic.
3. Éclair roll
This recipe offers all the great elements of an éclair – pastry, cream and chocolate – but with a little less work and time involved.
4. Chunky halloumi chips
These halloumi fries have a light, crisp outer shell and the halloumi goes all gooey and creamy as it warms up. With this garnish, fries just got exotic!
