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 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.
