Waitrose Weekend Christmas Collection:
Best-Ever Seasonal Meats

Posted on 11th November 2014

Nothing beats a sensational roast as the centrepiece of the Christmas lunch table, and this year I’ll be serving my turkey with a savoury brioche bread pudding and an apple compote that will make the kitchen smell fabulously Christmassy while it’s cooking.


Alternatively, try my fore rib of beef glazed with honey and horseradish, rack of venison with delicious caramelised chicory, or smoked gammon served with a lightly spicy chickpea salsa. A salmon fillet to serve up to eight people makes a wonderful main course on Christmas Day too, and the fantastic creamy red pepper sauce to serve with it will go down a storm with your festive guests.
