12 recipes of Christmas

Leading local chefs and bartenders show you how to whip up dishes and drinks that will make your seasonal celebrations extraordinary

By Time Out in association with Gaviscon

At the end of 2021, the prospect of Christmas get togethers has never been more welcome. All those long-postponed reunions will bring laughter, gifts, feasting and drinking, not to mention cricket games, swims, and Christmas crackers containing silly paper crowns and awful, awful jokes. We can't wait.  

To make Christmas 2021 extra special, we've invited chefs in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to contribute delicious recipes that will give any seasonal get-together a big lift. From the perfect Christmas turkey to a stunning seafood paella to summery cocktails, these are recipes that draw fans in top bars and restaurants that you can make at home to the amazement of your nearest and dearest.   

We've partnered with Gaviscon to bring you these recipes, because for some, hearty food and drink can unfortunately trigger heartburn or indigestion. Indulge in Christmas revelry without hesitation when you've got Gaviscon by your side. And happy holidays to all!
