Don’t be thrown by unexpected guests this Christmas – plan ahead for the possibility


We’ve all been there. You’ve carefully planned a lunch party, catered for ten, the table is set and you’re just waiting for your first guests to arrive. Then your nephew brings his new girlfriend, your sister brings her neighbour and your husband forgot to tell you he’d invited Steve from work. 


Instead of breaking out in a cold sweat and slicing the quiche into microscopic slices, make sure you plan ahead and have stocked up on plenty of extras. Why not start by including some of the new and fabulous Taste the Difference tartlets?

The salmon and scallops are served in a filo pastry tartlet with a rich thermidor sauce made with double cream, mature cheddar, white wine and brandy, onion, fennel, tarragon and Dijon mustard. 


Wonderful served with a crisp green salad and a glass or two of Prosecco
