Tom Kerridge Is Selling £350 Three Course Christmas Dinner In A Box
Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge is offering to take the hassle out of Christmas dinner with his takeaway meal kits providing everything you need for the big day for you to cook at home in around 90 minutes - however, you'll have to be willing to pay for the convenience as the kits cost a not-so wallet-friendly £350.
The celebrity chef is flogging three-course boxes, which serve between four and six people and contain everything you need to have a perfect roast dinner with all the trimmings.
Everything comes pre-prepared and par-cooked, so it just need an hour and a half of your time to get it table-ready.
The menu kicks off with canapes - Cumberland sausage rolls with Kerridge brown sauce, truffle cheese Gougère, and potted Loch Duart salmon tart with pickled cucumber chutney.
For the main course, you can choose between traditional roast Norfolk turkey with cranberry, chestnut and sage stuffing; beef wellington; or slow cooked shoulder of Cotswold venison. Fancy.
Alongside your choice of meat, you'll get carrots, roast potatoes, honey glazed parsnips, cauliflower cheese, sprouts with chestnuts, lardons and sage brown butter, pigs in blankets and roast turkey, beef or venison sauce - as well as an optional bread sauce for those opting for the turkey.
To round off your meal, there's Christmas pudding with brandy butter and caramelised white chocolate pebble petit fours. You'll also get some mince pies.
Announcing the new meal kit on Instagram, Kerridge wrote: "Do you fancy making Christmas extra special this year?

"Just pick between traditional Norfolk Christmas turkey, beef wellington or maybe try slow cooked shoulder of Venison."
Now, while that all sounds absolutely bloody delicious some people can't quite get past the £350 price tag - which doesn't include the £30 shipping cost.
On an Instagram post about the boxes, one person wrote: "That's a lot of money, and people like me don't have it to spend."
Another joked: "Obviously, for £380 (delivered), you'll be coming up north to finish the cooking for me, my question is will you be joining us for lunch? As that will then form part of my servings amount, not to mention my bubble."
But others seem more than happy, with one person writing: "This is the dream."
And another responding: "No way so happy about this! Can't wait to eat your food."
