Tom Kerridge Leaves People With Mixed Feelings Over £350 Christmas Dinner Delivery
We're all for pulling out the stops and making Christmas special this year.
Extra lights? Check. Binging allll the movies? Check. A £350 Christmas dinner delivery kit? Well, let's just say it's dividing the crowds.
Yep, celebrity chef Tom Kerridge has created a Christmas Dinner delivery service for those who want Michelin starred festive food without having to do any of the hard graft.
The three-course box, which feeds between four and six people, costs £350 plus a £30 delivery charge, and is full of Kerridge's fancy Christmas creations.
It does still require some cooking time, though. He recommends putting aside 90 minutes to make the Yuletide feast, and while everything comes pre-prepped, the idea is that you'll be sent a cook-along video showing Tom walking you through how to finish off each component of the meal.
The menu consists of canapés to start: Cumberland sausage rolls, Kerridge's crown sauce, truffle cheese gougère, a potted Loch Duart salmon tart and pickled cucumber chutney.
To follow will be a traditional Roast Norfolk turkey with cranberry, chestnut and sage stuffing.
Plus, alongside the turkey you'll get cauliflower cheese, hand and flowers carrots, honey glazed parsnips and crispy roast potatoes.
And those who indulge in his offering will get sprouts cooked in sage brown butter, topped with chestnuts and lardons and pigs in blankets as well as bread sauce and roast turkey sauce. Yum.
If turkey isn't your thing, you can also indulge in Beef Wellington or Slow Cooked Shoulder of Cotswold Venison - depending on your Christmas meat of choice.

Finally, for pud, there are also all sorts of tasty options including Christmas pudding with brandy butter, a petit four of caramelised white chocolate pebbles and mince pies.
As Tom Kerridge shared his delivery boxes on Insta, he received an overwhelmingly positive reaction, but as delicious as it all sounds, there were some issues people just couldn't get over.
"That's a lot of money, and people like me [don't] have it to spend", one wrote.
Meanwhile, others were upset there wasn't an option to order for less people - especially in the current situation, when many of us won't be together this year.
"This looks amazing....but would you consider allowing an order for 2? I will be on my own due to Covid so this wud be a wonderful treat but can't justify ordering for 4-6 thx, (sic)" said another.
As a fellow Insta' follower agreed: "Hey Tom, any chance of doing a half portion for me and the Mrs?"
Teasing that the serving looked much smaller than a typical Christmas dinner in their household, another wrote: "Tom that is a starter your showing there ??? (sic)"
There were plenty of shoppers who were more than sold on his offering, though.
"If it's as good as Kerridges Christmas lunch it will be amazing," said one, while another branded it "the stuff of dreams".
Tyla has contacted Tom Kerridge's rep for comment.
So, what do you think? Fancy a Michelin starred Christmas? You can order here if so.
