If you've popped a bottle of fizz over Christmas, pour a glass into these festive dishes for extra sparkle. Just like white wine, prosecco adds depth to your cooking along with a touch of luxury

You've added white wine to roast chicken and sloshed a little red wine into your beef sauce – so why not add a little prosecco to your cooking repertoire this Christmas? Prosecco keeps a roast chicken especially moist and adds floral notes to creamy panna cotta on Christmas Eve.
