In the countdown to Christmas, Mary and Paul are getting festive in the kitchen. They have six brand new recipes to bake for the family this Christmas, inspired by rich traditions from all over Europe. Paul kicks off the baking with St Lucia buns which are saffron buns traditionally eaten throughout Advent in Scandinavia. He puts a twist on the traditional mince pie, making a mincemeat and marzipan couronne, while Mary makes a French Galette and offers alternatives to traditional Christmas Cake and Christmas pudding. She makes a fruit-filled Genoa cake and white chocolate and stem ginger cheesecake. The baking is topped off by Paul’s showstopping Kranskake, a spectacular tower of rings of delicate mixture that will bring everyone to the table.
