Queue the biggest meal of your year. Your holiday dinner. It can get messy, sweaty, disastrous, miraculous, turn out a delight (or a fright), but it's worth it in the end. Wouldn't you agree?! 😄


Fancy mixing it up this year with festive dishes from around the world? We got our friends Caprice and Yan to help you achieve this! Read on friends!!

The Challenge

The dream team have paired up to take on our challenge! You may of heard of Caprice Bourret, the ultimate supermodel turned businesswoman.  Then there's Yan, Britain's Bake Off hero and internet star.  Well they teamed up to take on Trtl's Festive Feast Challenge this year.  The pair took on the task of re-creating three tasty courses from our top festive dishes.  

Over the 3 part series we will be featuring dishes from all over the world, with only one catch... they had no recipe to follow. 

Watch the teaser below to see how it unfolded...

Check out all episodes below or over on Facebook to see all the results of the Festive Feast Challenges!

Note: We made a couple of alterations to this recipe: we didn't include mayonnaise (as we heard it was too runny with mayo) and apples were used as a substitute for jicama (we couldn't source it in time unfortunately!).
