“I love my roasted chicken recipe – it’s rubbed with loads of garlic butter with a ton of fresh herbs and lemon zest, and more is stuffed underneath the skin. I snuggle up two to a pan, breast-side down so you’re left with an extremely juicy roasted chicken with a perfectly crispy skin,” she told the publication.

Chrissy also enjoys making Dutch baby pancakes.

“My Dutch baby pancake are my favourite to make for holiday mornings, especially when you have a good crowd of friends or family around. It comes out of the oven so perfectly golden brown and puffed up like a beautiful, buttery cloud. I like to put out a buffet of warm syrup, berries, cream, lemons, and powdered sugar (and Champagne!) so people can do up their slices as they please.”

You can find the recipe for her Dutch baby pancakes on the Vogue website.

Siba Mtongana

Siba Mtongana’s Christmas menu includes her famous Sunday Trifle recipe. You can’t have Christmas without the traditional dessert. The celebrity cook loves adding cream cheese and strawberry yogurt to her trifle.

She told ZAlebs in 2015 that the key to a successful Christmas lunch is to ask family for help.

“Plan in advance and ask family members to help with making at least one recipe each. For instance, draw up the menu and do the mains and dessert, and ask others to do the starter, salads and sides. That takes huge pressure off the one person,” she said.

Siba shared a tasty hack on how to “revamp a store-bought cake” for your festive season guests on Instagram. Her famous malva pudding recipe will leave friends and family drooling.

Ke Dezemba boss!! It’s officially the festive season!!🎉 We all live very busy lifestyles… in my case I’m a wife and a mom with a very demanding career… Sometimes I don’t have time to make things from scratch. So this craziness inspired many kitchen hacks and one of them for dessert is revamping a store bought red velvet or chocolate cake, but add a personal touch by adding some ‘vavavoooom’ with decorations and toppings of choice… will look like you toiled all day baking it😉❤ well, you’ll get 💯 for creativity, effort and lots of love for a custom made cake! 😅 …I’m all about quick, easy, convenience, kitchen tricks and short cuts. The advantage with this is you spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your loved ones and be part of all conversations rather than being stuck in the kitchen alone while you hear all the laughter and fun from afar🤔🤣🤣🤣 NO FOMO!… One perfect example for dessert is my old time hit, RED VELVET DELIGHT. It’s quick, easy and Sibalicious!! ❤️🍴🔥 #Sibalicious #dessert #festiveseason #treats #kitchenhacks #cake #fruit #food #instafood #easy
