Eating good food is one of the great joys in life - which is why we tend to make a point of doing just this when it comes to special occasions.
Any special occasion - be it a birthday, Christmas, or a celebration of some sort - calls for the right kind of food and with our dedicated selection of recipes for special occasions, you’re in the perfect place for lots of ideas and inspiration. Certain events definitely call for food that’s in keeping with the occasion.
Perhaps you’re planning your food for Bonfire Night? Think warming autumnal flavours and foods such as baked toffee apples, hearty chilli con carne, or beef burgers with a caramelised onion relish. And Burns Night just wouldn’t be the same without haggis - but why not try a new, cheesier take on this classic with mac and cheese?
Of course, Christmas is a time when special occasion food really comes into its own. Whether you’re planning on roasting a glazed gammon, getting creative with canapes, or baking an indulgent spiced dessert, you’ll find a scrumptious selection of inspiring recipes right here - plus recipes for all occasions from Diwali right through to Chinese New Year.
Perhaps you’re simply holding a summer barbecue? Or it might be someone’s birthday and you want to treat them to a delicious home-cooked meal that’s a little bit special. Browse our entire selection of special occasion recipes, from the savoury to the sweet, and you’re sure to find the ideal recipe to suit any occasion.
