You will need a blender for this recipe – the puree is smooth and rich, flavours from the white and shiitake mushrooms blended to perfection, and topped with lightly fried mushroom slices for the extra crunchiness when savouring the soup.

4. Creamy Chicken Soup

If mushroom soup is not your thing, then try chicken soup. Start early and simmer the ingredients for about eight hours in a Thermos® Shuttle Chef®, leaving you enough time to focus on the other dishes. If you like, you can also get fresh bread or breadsticks from the store to enjoy with your soup.

Turkey, glorious turkey! You don’t need a truckload of ingredients (just six), and you can serve four to six guests with just this dish. It is traditional, easy, and all you need is an oven big enough to fit the turkey. When purchasing a turkey, remember the general rule of thumb: one pound of turkey for every person at the table.
