Looking for inspiration to cater for a crowd over the festive period?

The pre-Christmas party

The pre-Christmas party

____________
 

Hosting a gathering ahead of the big day itself? For an evening drinks party, visit our Food Made to Order range and make things easy with ready-made canapés, light bites, cheeses and puds.

If your guests are hoping for a more substantial plate of food, perhaps for a Christmas Eve get-together, take the hassle out of serving dinner by laying on a buffet of meats, pre-prepared veg, sides, salads and accompaniments.

Serve a centrepiece such as our poached and dressed salmon side, and finish with mini tart selection so everyone can have an individual dessert.

Christmas dinner

____________


Keep it classic with our stuffed turkey crown that comes in a foil tray ready to go in the oven. Serve alongside a beech smoked muscovado glazed gammon, with parsnip rosti stars, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, roast carrots & parsnips, sprouts and cranberry sauce. Let everyone help themselves by serving in large dishes, so you don't end up plating up for everyone and sitting down to your dinner after your guests have nearly finished. It'll save the row over who wants sprouts, too.
