there’s still time to order a finish-at-home feast for christmas
If you want to stay at home to eat this Christmas Day but don’t really fancy being stuck in the kitchen all day peeling potatoes, then how about a finish-at-home feast? 2020 may be a year that many of us would rather forget, but with these offerings, we’ll at least have a meal to remember.
If you’ve never had a Forgotten Cuts roast before, you’re missing out: full of flavour, perfectly cooked and generously sized, they’re bloody delicious, so we’re licking our lips just thinking about their Christmas offering. Plus, the chef-run food delivery service only uses local, grass-fed, free-range animals and produce, so you don’t need to worry about provenance.
Omnivores can choose from a chicken liver parfait starter, with a main of bacon-wrapped turkey with extravagant takes on all the usual trimmings, such as chestnut sprout hash. Vegetarians and vegans are just as well catered for with a roasted Jerusalem artichoke and truffle soup and a vegan seasonal vegetable wellington, that you can add cheese to if you like. And their boogie bars (pictured) are a taste sensation. You’ll know your purchase is doing good, too, as 10% of profits will go to Brighton homeless charity Off The Fence.
Full instructions for the 30-minute heat-up are included and you don’t have to order a certain number of courses; you can just pick individual items providing you spend at least £10 a head. They’re also doing an insanely good menu for NYE if you’re thinking ahead.
£10/head minimum spend, £5 delivery; delivery or collection on the morning of 24th December
Riddle & Finns Christmas Day Feast
If you’re looking for some real razzle-dazzle this Christmas Day, then step right up. Riddle & Finns are bringing all the extravagance, but with none of the hard work. Exactly what we need after a year like this. Their finish-at-home feast – and it really is a feast – is a truly decadent, six-course sensation that champions super-fresh locally sourced products and exquisite flavours.
This is reflected in the price (£115 per person not including wines), but sometimes it’s worth splashing out, right? Pricey it may be, but you’re getting a lot of food for that buck. Think indulgent canapés (tuna cornetto, salmon caviar, truffle custard and charcoal bread) to get you in the feasting mood, followed by lobster, crab, a beef Wellington fillet with all (and we mean all) the trimmings and an oh-so-sweet finale of trifle, salted caramel truffles, chocolate and yuzu macarons. It’s basically foodie heaven.
They’re also throwing a lavish breakfast that includes caviar and salmon into the mix. And with step-by-step (and, importantly) easy-to-follow finishing instructions included, you’ll feel like a pro finishing it off. Just don’t miss the order cut-off!
From £115 per person; order by midnight on 18th December; Christmas Eve delivery (to BN1 – BN3) or collection
