Cook, fry, grill and steam your way to a fabulous Aussie festive feast 

One of the best things about the festive season is a fabulous feast shared with family and friends. The great Australian festive tradition is lunch, often enjoyed on the deck or in the backyard, and always featuring a range of tasty and filling festive food.

Hosting family and friends this season is a joyous experience, and we want to help make it easy to prepare and cook your festive feast so everyone, including the host, can spend time together enjoying delicious food on this special occasion.

Before we get to the menu for your Christmas feast, let’s consider how to create a festive feel by decorating your table. Do this well ahead of time – if you get started the day before your lunch or dinner is planned, you’ll have plenty of time to make it extra special, and the excitement will build as it all comes together.

If you have a little extra time on your hand, give each individual place setting a little bauble, as well as some Australian native greenery such as Christmas bush flower and Eucalyptus branches. Complement this with centrepieces for the table using candles or fairy lights to set the perfect mood for you and your guests.

Whether your menu is elaborate or simple, here are some creative and delicious recipe ideas with 4 products that will help make it easy, quick and tasty.
