Our celebrity tasters are back with a special festive guest
It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it... the M&S Food tasters, Amanda Holden, Emma Willis, Rochelle Humes and Paddy McGuinness, are back for a special Christmas episode of What's New at M&S Food, and they're joined by a special guest: Keith Lemon!
Emma, Paddy, Amanda and Rochelle were back in the M&S tasting kitchen for a special festive feast this month, trying some of the exciting new additions to our Christmas food range. From oozy cheeses to a showstopping beef centrepiece and decadent desserts, this year's festive food promises to make your Christmas taste truly magical. No wonder our foodies and their special guest Keith had a hard time picking their favourite. Taste the range for yourself in store and don’t forget to join the conversation on social media using #MyMarksFave.
Rochelle thought our baking camembert with a sweet chilli glaze was," incredible... perfect to snuggle up and watch Love Actually with"
For Paddy, our British sirloin of beef was impossible to beat. "It's unbelievable," he says. "There'll be none of them left on the shelf"
Our baked ricotta stacks were Amanda's dream veggie main. "They've got crunchy bits, soft bits and drizzly bits... to die for!"
Our Belgian chocolate and cherry dessert was Emma's festive favourite. "It's the perfect alternative to a Christmas yule log," she says
Special guest Keith surprised our panel of four foodie tasters this month to join in the festivities and help them taste their way through the latest additions to our Christmas food range. And let's just say, he definitely brought the Christmas cheer! He couldn't get enough of our Belgian chocolate mirror glaze cake. "What a joy," he says, "I don't normally like hazelnuts, but it's a lovely chocolatey treat." Watch the video to see more of Keith's antics.
