Heston from Waitrose

Heston’s back. And what's the Michelin starred
mastermind been up to this Christmas? Giant truffle
cakes, lemony mince pies and banana & bacon trifles...
Of course!

Banana & bacon trifle


‘Trifle is the number one dessert in the UK and tiramisu is a definite favourite. Banana and bacon are a great combination as one is sweet and the other smoky and savoury. Combine everything together and you get a fantastic sweet, savoury, creamy, smoky, crunchy dessert.’

Spiced shortcrust mince pies 
with a lemon twist

Heston’s pies are deliciously different – a cross between a Sussex pond pudding and a classic mince pie. With spiced shortcrust pastry and a crumbly top, these mouthwatering pies are a winning combo.
