Top Tips for your Christmas Dinner

The festive season is well and truly in swing now and here at INOX we’re looking forward to welcoming nearly two thousand guests for festive lunches, dinners and parties over the next few weeks. As the big day gets closer and closer, cooking a Christmas dinner can start to feel a little daunting. We caught up with our award winning Sous Chef, Ben Slater, who shared his top tips for cooking the perfect Christmas dinner.

“The best advice I could give people when cooking their Christmas dinner is:

Absolutely make sure you baste your turkey to keep it moist… this is really important.

Cook your roast potatoes with fresh garlic and rosemary to add extra flavour.

The trick to the best Christmas dinner is when the veg and accompaniments have had the same care and attention that the turkey (or your chosen meat) has had.

Always rest the turkey after cooking. If you have a temperature probe, use this to your advantage, cooking the turkey to 75 degrees will help keep the turkey moist and stop it drying out. Make sure you probe at the thickest part of the bird (the thigh).

Oh, and most importantly a glass of port or a cold beer while you’re cooking Christmas dinner always helps!”

There you have it, folks! 

A Blast From the Past

We love it when customers share their stories with us. We were delighted to hear from Chris Bower who married her husband John in May 1986. Chris and John were married at St. James Church in Norton and held their reception in what is now INOX. They were kind enough to share their story with us, along with some pictures from their visit to the restaurant in June.

“We married at St James Church, Norton on 17th May 1986 and as John lived at Hillsborough and I lived at Lowedges we decided we needed our wedding reception to be somewhere central but as we had a large guest list it also needed to be big enough for both our families and reasonably priced too and so the Sheffield Students Common room, as it was then called, was ideal.

As it was the middle of May we thought it would be a sunny day but as it turned out it was windy and drizzly, we managed to get most of our photos taken outside the church but then the rain came and so we made our escape and had some more taken inside the evening reception room.

Eating out in Sheffield during Diet Awareness Week

It’s Diet Awareness Week from April 24-28th and at Inox, we want to illustrate how tasty, nutritious and fantastic food can be included in all dishes irrespective of whether you are dieting or not!

Sometimes to make a great flavour dish you have to think a little outside of the box. Did you know that the juice from chickpeas can be used to make vegan chocolate mousse? We are full of useful and insightful facts, and our creative chefs use these to create some amazing dishes. Our vegan chocolate mousse is so good it was recently featured in the 2017 Sheffield Cook Book, pop over to Inox and take a look or purchase your copy.

Where to Eat in Sheffield on a Diet 

All the standard dietary requirements will be included in our regular menus throughout the week, so irrespective of what stage you are at with your diet you can still savour and enjoy our fantastic range of menu options. Equally, our chefs can create bespoke dishes too!

Special diets don’t need to be limiting; this week is a great opportunity to be creative and explore new ingredients. When it comes to accommodating dietary requirements, Inox is one of the best places to eat in Sheffield.

Eating Out in Sheffield This Week 

If you’re looking for some inspiration or interesting ideas for new dishes which incorporate specific diets, take the time during Diet Awareness Week to experiment. Even if you don’t have dietary requirements this is a great opportunity to explore new flavours, try new ingredients, and join in the fun! Post photos on Twitter and Instagram and share your creative cooking skills with us.

We love to see our customers getting creative with food and what better week to try new things than Special Diet Awareness Week. Pop in for the best afternoon tea or lunch in Sheffield; we look forward to greeting you at Inox as always throughout Diet Awareness Week.
