“List what you need and what needs to be done,” he told FEMAIL.
“And it sounds obvious, but invite those you love around to add the ingredient you can’t buy – laughter!”
Matt also said that you should opt for a menu where the majority can be prepared in advance so you don’t have to spend time sweating in the kitchen when your guests are there.
Matt said the menu is designed to bring people back together to reconnect and share food, and it’s perfect for Christmas in July (the menu shown)
