The perfect turkey
We all worry about the turkey, so this year, we’ve done the hard work for you. The juicy crown and stuffed deboned legs cook at the same time, so it’s spot-on every time.

Standout seafood starter
Anything that saves time but still looks and tastes amazing gets a big tick, and these pretty Honduran king prawn and lobster thermidor shells, with a creamy sauce, fit the bill perfectly.
The vegan feast
Whether you’re going vegan or catering for guests who are, we’ve got you covered this year. This Plant Kitchen root vegetable tarte tatin looks (and tastes) so festive.

The magical cake
We’ve reimagined the classic yule log in delicious chocolate cake form, complete with miniature woodland mushroom, leaf and acorn decorations. Heaven with a cuppa.

The crowd pleaser
Bone-in sirloin is dry-aged for 30 days for an excellent depth of flavour and a tender texture. Like all our beef, it’s 100% British, and traceable back to the farm and animal.

Cheese? Yes please!
This year’s big cheese: oozy, melty French brie in rich, buttery golden pastry, studded with rosemary and garlic. Simply heat until it’s gooey then let everyone dig in.

The ultimate festive salmon
Nothing beats smoked salmon and a glass of fizz, and our gin-cured Scottish Speybay smoked salmon is deliciously sweet and smoky, with a buttery texture.

New take on a retro pud
Black forest gateau is a Seventies' classic that’s stood the test of time. This year, enjoy the flavours of cherry, chocolate and fresh cream in this indulgent Christmas cake.
Show me the cake
Our twist on a traditional plum pud, packed with dates, fudge, rum and pecans. Just heat the rich toffee sauce before serving and pour over in a final flourish at the table.
