Christmas Food Q&A: Morten Rengtved – Bread Street Brasserie

Chef Rengtved gives us his guide to a yummy yuletide

I'm planning a Christmas meal and want to offer a couple of unusual twists. What would you suggest?

I would make Turkey spring roll with cranberry chutney, and Christmas pudding strudel with brandy crème Anglaise and cinnamon ice-cream.

It's Boxing Day and I've got half a turkey uneaten. Any recommendations for some legendary leftovers?

How about a turkey, leek and pancetta pie

Which dishes on your Christmas/December menu do you most like cooking? And which least?

I most like making our cock-a-leekie terrine, and least like cooking the parsnip, cranberry and chestnut loaf.

I fancy giving food items for presents at Christmas. Any suggestions?

Baked Alaska with Christmas pudding ice-cream or cold vanilla rice pudding with cherries and almonds.

Which new kitchen gadget would you most like to find in your stocking? And which food item?

I would like a Danish hotdog!
