Christmas. Does the word evoke joy or dread in your mind? In all honesty, I love Christmas. I love the nostalgic feelings that the lights, sounds and familiar flavours instil in you. I love visiting family (yes, honestly), buying presents and decorating the house. One of my greatest treats is to revisit a well-watched period drama on the telly while wrapping the presents for my children.
But most of all, Christmas is about the food, isn’t it?
Turkey, cranberries, pigs in blanket, roast salmon and roast vegetables; the addition of the special transforms our humble roast dinner into a feast. Then you get the joy of tucking into a selection box while watching the afternoon family film.
Here at Just Catering, we have tried to instill those classic flavours into our new festive menu, while presenting them in a clean, modern way. Our menu is perfect for corporate events such as staff parties or entertaining clientele. It is also fantastic for private Christmas parties.
It was a privilege and joy to spend the morning with Carl today, photographing the new festive range from Just Catering. There was so many delicious options to chose from, but eventually we settled on some of the Team’s favourites. Check out the festive menu here for all the details, but please find some of the highlights below.
The canapés featured here are: cheese and ham on a bread base, smoked salmon on poppy seed blinis, Serrano (Spanish cured ham) with basil cream on cereal bread and smoked salmon on blinis.
The sandwiches featured here are mixed cheese with spicy chutney and turkey, stuffing and cranberry.
If your guests would like a lighter buffet, try substituting the bread for wraps. Here you can see our peri-peri chicken with red onion, cabbage and carrot salad.
What more do I need to say? Succulent pork wrapped in bacon with a passion fruit and mango coulis.
Here we have a selection of duck spring rolls, vegetable wantons and moneybags with a sweet chilli dip.
For an optional extra of £17.50 per 7 people, you can add a generous selection of cheese and crackers to your meal.
I hope you enjoyed thinking about eating this food as much as we enjoyed preparing it for you. Book soon to avoid disappointment! Happy feasting!
