Cranberry Sauce & Bread Sauce Recipe | Marco Pierre White

Marco Pierre White shares some of his Christmas favourites, a cranberry sauce and a bread sauce recipe.

You don’t need to buy a jar of cranberry sauce every Christmas and pray that it will still be okay next Christmas. Make your own and critically learn the basics that could be used for any other berries that you might want to make a sauce from.

The same for the bread sauce!
