Taste evenings: Ultimate Christmas dinner

Get all the tips and tricks you need to nail the perfect Christmas dinner with our fun festive demonstration evening. You can sit back with a drink and watch as our chefs tackle all your questions on turkeys, veg, sides and sauces, with plenty of tasters and new inspiration along the way. 


What to expect

Our Christmas classes are designed to help you prepare for the festive season, providing you with plenty of advice from our chefs to take the stress out of those essential dishes, plus opportunities to get ahead with recipes and some new ideas to shake things up.
