Christmas is just around the corner and it's time to think of new and original seasonal recipes to welcome friends and family into your home. Laughter is brightest where food is best. Enjoy the last days of the year around a table and discover how to prepare sophisticated dishes with Cermer's sustainable kitchen and tableware. Cheers!
Bliss in the kitchen
From delicious portions of finger food to seasonal salads and sophisticated dessert creations. To really get into the Christmas spirit, it is best to do it through the palate. But be mindful, it's not just about putting your gourmet talent to the test, it´s also about proper presentation. So, gather your ceramic jars, ramekins and dishes and choose from some of our fantastic ideas to make your lunches and dinners unforgettable.
You don't have to decide on a single recipe. Our individual jars and dishes are ideal for trying two or more dishes to make your next dinner party more entertaining.
Tired of holiday classics like rolled turkey breast or glazed ham? Or maybe you have guests who prefer lighter or meat-free options? One thing is clear: during the holidays there is time to innovate with more original ideas. To make your next dinner more exciting, why not prepare different varieties of mini quiches? You only need shortcrust pastry, eggs, crême fraîche or light cream to cook and add the ingredients you like the most: pumpkin with quince fruit, salmon with goat cheese or stay classy with a simple quiche Lorraine. After 15 minutes in the oven, your creations will be ready. What´s more, don’t worry about your ceramic containers because our kitchenware is 100% oven safe.
And if your guests are not the most punctual in the world, it never hurts to be prepared with a cold starter. Try a salad made with roasted rosemary potatoes and honey-infused carrots and add a touch of color with sun-dried tomatoes and fresh basil.
Pleasure and well-being are not mutually exclusive concepts, the list of tasty and healthy dessert recipes is endless. Adding a seasonal touch to your favorite desserts can be achieved with simple ingredients such as accompanying them with pomegranate grains, sprinkling them with ground cinnamon or simply serving your desserts in an elegant ceramic pot that best matches the decoration on your table.
If you want to try something new and leave your guests speechless, include in your menu a traditional Christmas dish from Ukraine that symbolizes prosperity and good luck in the coming year that is also popular in other Eastern European countries. It is a sweet pudding that consists of cooked wheat berries, poppy seeds and honey called Kutia, which can be served cold or warm. Present it in individual ceramic bowls or jars and add chopped dried fruit, raisins or candied orange peel as a garnish.
Whatever your dessert creation for your Christmas lunch or dinner is, Cermer's ceramic tableware can provide that final touch to enjoy every single one in the best of company.
Without a doubt, there is no get-together without a pleasant after-meal conversation. It’s time to get creative and pull out all the stops to win the Host of the Year Award! Coffee lovers will be amazed at how easy it is to spice up this daily essential with some festive ingredients. Mix espresso with spices of your choice like cinnamon, ginger or nutmeg and then add whipped cream to the hot coffee and stir till it becomes a liquid. For a caffeine-free alternative, mix one tablespoon of cocoa with one tablespoon of ground ginger in hot water. Do not forget to complement these hot drinks with a finishing touch of homemade gingerbread men or cinnamon stars.
