Planning delicious and festive menus that cater for all meal occasions and dietary requirements can be a tricky task, so to help make your lives easier we have pulled together our top 5 new products this Christmas to help you create a memorable meal that everyone will love.
1. Little & Cull vegan butternut squash and caramelised onion tart in beetroot pastry
A fantastic centre of plate, vegan alternative starter. This tart is full of flavour with sweetness of the butternut squash and caramelised onions and textures from the quinoa and mixed seed crumb topping. The beetroot pastry gives this tart a fantastic pop of colour.

3. CMC smoked pulled turkey
We love this twist on a Christmas classic. Oak-smoked turkey thigh, sous vide and pulled, this product is the perfect way to modernise your festive menu options and offers a great alternative way to enjoy turkey.
Smokey and tender, this pulled turkey is perfect for festive sandwiches, ideal as a Christmas burger topper and taco filling or perfect for topping seasonal fully loaded nachos or fries.

We certainly cannot forget about the sides, this premium potato gratin with white truffle is guaranteed to elevate your main course. High quality ingredients make this a unique alternative to traditional gratin – the recipe includes white summer truffles, milk and cream for a luxurious taste.
