An alternative Christmas lunch

No doubt, even though Christmas is a still a few days away, many of you will have already sat down to eat a Christmas lunch.

Whether it was a work’s party or just a trip to the pub, you may already be sick of the sight of turkey, roast potatoes and brussel sprouts, although if you are sick of the latter, you obviously haven’t read our last two blogs!
