Christmas is coming folks! I know this because this past Saturday I finally capitulated – and put up all my Christmas decorations. It may seem early, but given that I’ve been contemplating doing so since the beginning of October, I think I’ve shown remarkable restraint. I obviously feel about Christmas the way a 5-year-old does – super duper excited. So now the entire house is bauble-pimped to the max. There’s silver and white and gold and fairy lights everywhere… All a bit OTT, just the way I like it.
I love entertaining at the best of times, but even more so during the festive season. And I seriously don’t believe in stressing in the kitchen. This is the time of year when my naughty hacks and shortcuts get dusted off, like this milk tart mille feuille. It sounds impressive, it looks amazing, and it’s no trouble at all. That’s because the filling is a stovetop one that you can make a day or two beforehand and pop in the fridge. And the pastry comes out a box. Assemble it in minutes on the day and wait for the compliments
