Even though you can’t bring Henrietta Green home with you to help prepare your Christmas celebration, you can still have access to the regional food writer’s advice twenty-four-hours a day at Foodloversbritain.com. Her regular feature, the “Little Green Book” has turned into the overflowing “Big Green Christmas book.” The online resource is bubbling over with suggestions for finding everything you need for the holidays.
As a self-proclaimed “locavore”, Green is committed to helping you buy locally whenever possible. At the site, find links to area resources for everything from Turkeys, to alternative game, ham and roast beef. You’ll find suggestions for starters, side dishes, puddings and cakes. Also among the links, find UK whiskey and spirit makers, award-winning chocolates, and desserts free of additives and preservatives.
To help cooks stay out of long queue lines, Foodloversbritain has put together a turkey hamper sized just for the number of guests you expect at your celebratory meal. And if you purchase the turkey box, the trimmings are free. Boxes range in sizes from those serving six -eight diners for £78 to a large Turkey Box for a table filled with twelve to fourteen people for £115. Writers at foodloversbritain describe the free range Kelly Bronze in the box as the “Rolls Royce” of turkeys . Oak-smoked streaky bacon helps keep the breast moist. Sausagemeat Stuffing from Musk’s has been ready mixed with chestnut puree and citrus peel. Doesn’t it make you hungry just reading about the delicious bird?
Other nice features of the online Christmas Book include a large section of gift ideas for food-lovers, another section listing cook book suggestions, and a schedule of the many local festivals and holiday food events for the year. The website is easy to use and stuffed with enough information to keep you in the know for the Christmas season.
