Catherine Fulvio has been busy travelling the world in order to bring Irish dishes to the scattered diaspora in Tastes Like Home. Luckily for us, the TV chef has managed to find some time to share her top cooking tips for Christmas. 

Mince Pies
Don't have time to create lots of individual mince pies? Catherine has got you covered.

"Simply get your pastry, roll it out, put it in a swiss roll tin, put your mincemeat on top and then maybe a little bit of dried cranberry over that - that would be gorgeous.

"You'll have leftover pastry so cut some stars out from that, sprinkle them liberally on top, egg glaze it and into the oven at 170 degrees for about 20 minutes and you'll have one ginormous, delicious mince pie."

Happy holidays!
