Have Yourself a Very Foodie Christmas
Make sure your guests are wowed with the very best of everything this December.
Whether you are hosting or simply a generous guest, Christmas is a great excuse to embrace your inner foodie and buy the best produce from around the Market.
The centrepiece of many a Christmas table, for meat to impress, head to The Butchery.
Our award-winning whole-carcass family-run butchers, specialising in high welfare meat from independent farmers, have thought of everything, with a seasonal list to inspire.
Choose from turkeys, cockerels, chickens, white geese and ducks sourced from Fosse Meadows in Leicestershire, an incredible selection of pasture-fed dry-aged beef, and sausages and bacon that will take your pigs-in-blankets to previously unseen levels.
Orders can be made online or in-store until 7pm Monday 16th December, or until they sell out.
Choosing an appropriate “event wine” is a must during the festive season, whether you are gathering for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Year.
But if you struggle to move away from trusted favourites, let the wine experts at BOTTLES take the strain and advise.
While they can help you pair a wine for any meal, if you are looking for an all-rounder, a good place to start is the Antolini Recioto Della Valpolicella 2017. With spicy plum notes and acidity, it’s light enough to go with everything from turkey and veggies, to beef or cheese. Plus it’s an excellent choice to drink on its own.
On the hunt for celebratory fizz? The light bubbles of their Malibran “Sottoriva” hit the right spot every time.
The name of our new fromagerie ‘Take it Cheesy’ may seem lighthearted, but trust us, these guys are very serious about their cheese.
With a vast selection of British and international cheese available, both to preorder and for walk-ins, make sure you take the time to speak to the team and try a few of their recommendations before making your crucial final choices.
Need to grab some guaranteed big-hitters in a rush? Go for some of the rich and creamy Beaufort, their unforgettable Brillat-Savarin (like the Philadelphia cream cheese of dreams) and – because it’s Christmas – splash out on some of their stunning truffle-studded Brie.
For luxe entertaining, without the hassle, our Wright Brothers restaurant are once again coming to the rescue with their sumptuous seafood platters.
A favourite for those eating in the restaurant, these perfectly presented plates of shellfish feel extra decadent when presented at home.
While ordering one of these for collection will ensure your catering is top-notch, we can’t promise the same when it comes to the behaviour of your guests… we couldn’t blame them for fighting over the last oyster.
Thinking of creating some accompanying cocktails? Pick up some of the new Wright Brothers ‘Half Shell Gin’. Created in partnership with The Ginstitute distillery, it’s designed to complement the restaurant’s oyster, shellfish and fish dishes.
