Wowing your guests with an unusual starter is the perfect way to kick off your festive feast.
Heirloom tomato and fresh burrata piled onto sourdough bruschetta is a colourful, light starter before the main event - and it's quick and easy.
Or, meat-eaters will love the freshness of a seared and spiced venison Carpaccio.
A traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings may be the star of the show, but there are plenty of other options to consider if your guests prefer a fish dish as the main event. Wild sea bass and pureed parsnip is a great alternative and always sure to impress.
And for your final flourish, Mary Berry's easy fruit cake recipe is perfect if you prefer a lighter fruit cake that still has lots of fruity flavour and is one of those “cut-and-come-again” cakes. Or of course, the baking queen's 'best ever chocolate brownies' are impossible to beat.
