The challenge of Christmas: how to plan your festive food in the face of uncertainty

What does a ‘normal’ Christmas look like for you? What will that be like this year? The problem is no one knows!

This could be the year we celebrate on Zoom, or perhaps we’ll have everyone round like usual. Maybe we’ll have all our classic traditions, or maybe 2020 will be the year to make new ones! Whatever your plan, it can still be great, but when it comes to festive food, how can you properly prepare when you’re not quite sure where, how or who you will be celebrating with? The key might be lurking in your freezer! Or rather in stocking your freezer with festive goodies that are individually wrapped, will last more than a year, can cater for 1 or 100 and taste oh so good! Even better, this could be the year you select a different festive treat for every person like turkey for Nan and pies for Uncle Bob, and a profiterole (or six) for your favourite nieces and nephews.

Introducing Love What You Eat, the online shopping destination bringing sustainably sourced meat, fish, shellfish, pies, pastries, and desserts to your door, frozen for freshness and individually wrapped. It’s the perfect solution and you know you’ve got delightful treats ready and waiting in the freezer, regardless of whether it’s one big party or six small ones; whether it happens on Christmas Day or in January; and whether you can all be together or you’re worlds apart. Even better, if you definitely can’t get together this year, then why not consider sending everyone a food parcel so you can share the same meal virtually and all tuck in? Love What You Eat also offer veg boxes, wines, and beers to really top off your festive cheer!

As well as the classics like pigs in blankets, three-bird-roast and turkey crowns, their festive favourites include:

  • Individual hot steamed puddings like Chocolate, Sticky Toffee, and Spiced Apple
  • Eton Mess Cheesecake, or Lemon Brulee, New York, Chocolate Chip, Raspberry Mess, Hazelnut Passion, and Golden Fudge flavours if preferred
  • Sustainable shellfish including Cornish Wild Dressed Crabs, Lobster Tails and Alaskan King Crab
  • Breaded Camembert & Brie Wedges
