Marks & Spencer launches Christmas food to order range – and it all looks delicious

Whether you’re having all the family over for a big Christmas dinner this year, or keeping it small and lowkey there’s something for every occasion in M&S’ new food to go range

Now, it may be too early to put up the Christmas tree, but it’s always best to be prepared when it comes to stocking up on food for the big day.

Luckily, M&S has just launched its Christmas food to order range, which includes all the roast dinner essentials and some indulgent festive extras.

Shoppers hoping to beat the Christmas rush this year can pre-order items from the range now for collection from December 22 – so all you need to do is make room in the freezer.

The range features everything you need to feed your guests on the big day including several turkey options as well as pork crackling and roast beef.

There’s also incredible plant-based options this year including a tasty vegan beef wellington, vegan duck croquettes and an indulgent melt in the middle chocolate pudding.

To order your Christmas menu, visit the M&S website where you can book a collection slot. Then select the dishes that take your fancy, before paying a £40 deposit.

You’ll pay the balance owed when you collect your order from an M&S store between December 22 to Christmas Eve.

We’ve picked out some of our top picks from the food to order range below:

Vegan Beef Wellington (Serves 4) – £15
This tender, wheat and pea-based vegan Wellington is topped with rich mushroom duxelles and wrapped in a crisp puff pastry for that satisfyingly good crunch.

The Perfect Turkey Joint (Serves 8-10) – £45
Filled a pork, chestnut, cranberry and sloe gin stuffing, it’s topped with apple wood-smoked streaky bacon and garnished with a bouquet garni, goose-fat butter and a salt and pepper sprinkle – we have a feeling you won’t be disappointed with this year’s show-stopper.

Plus, there’s a roast-chicken stock sachet to supercharge your gravy – our mouths are already watering.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Crown (Serves 12) – £20

Fit for a queen, M&S’ sticky toffee pudding crown would make a great alternative to a traditional Christmas pudding.

Best of all? It comes with salted caramel sauce and a Madagascan vanilla custard to pour over the top.

The dessert is big enough to feed 12 – so it’s great for larger gatherings or enough for everyone to have seconds.

Vegan Melt in The Middle Chocolate Pudding (Serves 6) – £10

Just looking at the picture makes our mouthes water. This soft-textured chocolate pudding features a coconut milk based sponge with a hidden centre of smooth Belgian dark chocolate fondant is the perfect treat to end the night on.
