AGA Portmeirion cookware for Christmas

Festive Christmas Entertaining with Penny Zako

Festive Christmas Entertaining

We held a wonderful Festive christmas Entertaining Demonstration in our massive showroom at Twyford Cookers.

32 guests arrived and were treated to festive drinks and ginger biscuits and brownies cooked by Lisa Caldicott, who has revealed to us all, she is a quality cook.

However, Penny Zako, AGA Queen and ace demonstrator and cook, arrived to treat us all to some new ideas for christmas entertaining on the AGA.

She was full of life and full of useful ideas and delicious recipes for christmas.  I have decided to treat you to some of her recipes over the forthcoming countdown to Christmas.

Here is recipe number 1 – and such a useful recipe to hold in your ideas book.

A simple Hollandaise sauce, that can be created in minutes.

Use this sauce to serve with poached or roasted Chicken or Salmon, and you have created a feast with very little effort.


The recipe is as follows


200g tub creme Fraiche

1/2 lemon juiced

2 egg yolks

1 dessert spoon white wine vinegar

50g butter – softened


chopped tarragon if you have it

Please all the ingredients except the butter into the AGA saucepot and heat on the simmering plate, whisk until combined

Remove from the heat and season

Whisk in the butter and if using, add the chopped tarragon – Serve and enjoy
