I know - it is only October but we have to keep up with the rest of this crazy nation and discuss the dreaded C-word!

I will not dwell on it.  We shall not go on and rub it in your face.  Instead  simply mention that we do a wonderful take on the traditional Christmas cake (a twist that still uses copious amounts of booze - but is not as heavy or dark for those anti the 'old skool' fruit offering - and there are a lot of us !)

We also continue to come to your homes and take the burden of seasonal entertaining off your hands with our ingenious festive canapés - or the full sit down roast with our take on 'all the trimmings'

Below are a selected few ideas to get you salivating - FAR TOO early in the year.
