Bonfire night favourites with a maple twist


Bonfire night is upon us and, while this year’s celebrations may be different than usual, we have some recipes for you to enjoy from the comfort of your home.

With a variety of dishes to choose from, including savoury and sweet, these recipes are a great way to make your bonfire night special.

The star of the evening will definitely be this maple beef casserole made with winter root vegetables. A hearty and wholesome dish, this slow-cooked beef with a dash of sweet maple and seasonal vegetables is the perfect dinner to warm you up on a chilly bonfire night.
