Not just food…

Take the heat out of the kitchen and prepare a party in minutes with the help of Marks and Spencer food hall products

Christmas comes but once a year and when it comes it shreds your nerves and strips your bank account. We all know it’s coming and we all know we should prepare ahead but the weeks just whiz by and before you know it you have 24 hours to prepare a party for friends and neighbours.

It then becomes an annual triumph of hope over experience, a time when you push the budget to the limit, where you overreach yourself with the canapés because trying to impress is only human. Festive assistance is now to hand however in the form of mini food halls in Marks and Spencer stores across the island.

We were able to entertain 20 friends and neighbours with M&S produce where the sole role played by the hostess was to open food packets, warm up the oven and cook from frozen the range of goodies on offer. And it’s not just food on offer but deeply comforting party fayre of old from M&S.

Our guests happily tucked into parcels of rich creamy salmon mousse wrapped in oak Scottish smoked salmon. There was a mouth watering choice of warm Moorish mushroom or spinach filo tartlets and Indian style mini chicken kebabs with a selection of tandoori, korma or tikka flavourings.

We also sampled a full selection of quiches: cheese and onion, bacon leek and mushroom and a classic Lorraine. A special mention must also go to the best honey roasted almonds I have ever tasted.

Puddings offered included a Belgian chocolate and pannacotta ocean brownie pie which tasted great. Other big sweetie hits included organic ginger globes dipped in dark chocolate along with the connoisseur range of Florentines, which were simply sensational enjoyed solo or when crumbled into a dish of M&S clotted vanilla velvet ice cream.

Guests were later moved (albeit slowly) to then dip into a purely indulgent Belgian biscuit selection or a slice of Iced Christmas cake and luxury mince pies.

The other plus point for M&S is the complete absence of artificial colours, flavourings, hydrogenated fats or preservatives, and on all packets there are clear nutrition guide lines.

The range of M&S festive food now available in Cyprus can help make this a truly indulgent experience, with all the heat in the kitchen coming solely from the oven and not from the moist brow of an overworked, tired host.

The M&S food range is available in the following stores
Nicosia: Acropolis Avenue, Tel: 22 510900, Makarios Avenue, Tel: 22 753078, Home Store, Tel: 22 871749. Limassol, Tel: 25 748166. Larnaca, Tel: 24 821960. Paphos, Tel: 26 222771
