River Cottage Christmas Fayre

River Cottage Christmas Fayre

About Me: Christmas; it’s a celebration of a year well spent and a chance to feast on fine winter food with friends and family. So, not surprisingly, at River Cottage we love the whole holiday season. In fact we love it so much that this year we decided to throw our first-ever River Cottage Christmas Fayre. In an evening of traditional festive British foods, look out for deliciously different ways to stuff a roast goose, a trio of recipes for that wonderful winter root celeriac, Hugh’s take on a sweet chutney, luxuriously rich Christmas bread and tips for how to fill the perfect hamper with hand made edible goodies. All that plus a festive foraged cocktail, a ginger bread house competition, a caroling Christmas party and hangover cures!

Ginger Bread Recipe - The House That We Built!

added by River Cottage Christmas Fayre

Our other Ginger Bread recipe is for a normal family-sized house. If however you want to build to impress, you may want to scale up to this recipe - as used for our house for the River Cottage Christmas Fayre!

Ginger Bread Recipe

added by River Cottage Christmas Fayre

This makes enough gingerbread for a family-portioned house, if you are after your own HQ, check out the recipe for our Ginger Bread RCHQ that we made for the Christmas Fayre! (The photo is of our ginger bread RCHQ, which requires a larger mix than this family-sized recipe. If you aspire to build big, check out our other recipe for the house that we built - also under our recipes).
