This year’s products include a range of chilled and frozen party food for starters, from Oriental snacks and Thai chicken canapés to more traditional cocktail sausages and mini steak and ale pies. Main meals include the Truly Irresistible orange infused salmon with honey and maple glaze; the Co-operative Fresh British Large Unfatted Beef Roasting Joint; and Loved By Us Unsmoked Gammon Joint. Then for dessert you will find mince pies and Christmas pudding, baked Alaska, chocolate and orange dome cake and a pannacotta terrine – and a range of cheese and biscuits.
