  • Festive Gingerbread

    Elevate your Christmas festivities with the magic of gingerbread! With Tefal Easy Fry Multifunctional Air Fryer Oven, we’re turning your kitchen into a holiday wonderland. In just a few simple steps, you’ll be crafting 20-25 delectable gingerbread treats that capture the true essence of the season.

    Let’s create gingerbread joy together!


    350g plain flour
    150g brown sugar
    85g unsalted butter
    150g golden or maple syrup
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1/4 tsp ground cloves


    • Sieve the flour, ginger, cloves and cinnamon into a large bowl.
    • Heat the butter in the microwave until melted.
    • Add the sugar and syrup to the melted butter and mix until dissolved.
    • Leave the sugar mixture to cool slightly, then mix into the dry ingredients to form a dough. Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a ¼-inch thickness.
    • Using the cookie cutter, stamp out your chosen shapes then re-roll any offcuts and repeat.
    • Place in the air fryer, on 180 degrees, with enough space between to allow for spreading for 3-5 minutes.
    • Once cool, decorate or simply enjoy on their own.
  • Mont Blanc Cappuccino

    Let’s indulge in the joy of the season with the ultimate Christmas treat – the Mont Blanc Cappuccino, perfectly crafted with the KRUPS Evidence Eco!  It’s a sip of festive magic, combining rich espresso and velvety froth milk, sprinkled with a touch of holiday cheer.

    Let’s turn your coffee break into a celebration!

    Ingredients (This drink serves 1)

    A few candied chestnuts
    1 heaped tsp chestnut puree
    10cl almond milk


    • Place chestnut puree at the bottom of the glass. Attach the milk spout to the coffee machine and immerse it in the milk.
    • Place the glass under the coffee nozzle and select Cappuccino Size L.
    • Place a few candied chestnuts on top.
    • Sit back, sip & enjoy!
  • Mistletoe Mozzarella Sticks

    Now, let’s enjoy the epitome of holiday snacks with our Christmas Mozzarella Sticks, air-fried to perfection in our state-of-the-art TEFAL Dual Drawer Air Fryer & Grill!

    Ingredients (This makes 6 sticks) 

    1 block of Mozzarella
    70 g Plain Flour
    30 g grated Parmesan
    1 teaspoon Herbes de Provence
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 large egg
    1 egg white
    Vegetable oil


    • Cut the block of mozzarella into 12 sticks, then cut these in half so you have 24 pieces. In a large bowl, mix flour, grated Parmesan, Herbes de Provence and garlic powder.
    • In another bowl, beat the egg and egg white with a fork and put some baking paper on a baking tray.
    • Dip the mozzarella sticks into the different bowls in the following order: Flour and Parmesan, then eggs and finally the flour again. Place the sticks on the baking tray as you go. Once all the sticks have been coated, put them in the freezer for at least 1 hour.
    • Cover the grill plate with baking paper. Place half the mozzarella sticks into the cooking bowl, making sure they are not touching. Brush them with oil.
    • Set the AIR FRY programme to 200°C for 13 minutes. Turn them over with a fork halfway through cooking. The outside should be crisp and golden.
    • Once finished, repeat the process with the second batch.
    • Serve the mozzarella sticks hot with a side of your favourite dip!
