    ...roast veg - all kinds - freshly prepared. Especially red cabbage with onions, apples, cranberries, port (homemade!).

    Pork Pie, Garners pickled onions, beetroot, other pickles - for boxing day.

    Home roasted ham.

    Christmas cake with cheese,

    Cheese platter - from a cheesemonger - no more than 3 or 4 cheeses and big bits that last for weeks, Fruit and crackers and nuts to go with it.

    That's about it - it keeps us going along with bread and other fresh veg.

    Alcohol - port!

    Fresh fruit.

    Made cranberry sauce for the first time, last year. Cannot believe I've never done it before! So easy, and delish!

    Have never baked a Camembert, either! Will do that. But how easy will it be to eat the whole lot in one go?!

    Extra thick cream with brandy. I never usually eat cream as I find it sickly but with brandy on Christmas pud or mince pies, delish!!!!!!:D

    I actually love ALL (non-meat) food at Christmas. Which is probably why I'll be joining the weight-loss thread come January.

    Turkey and roast vegetables. Also love the treat of smoked salmon which I rarely buy at other times.

    You’ve misunderstood DoY. This is a thread about food you love.

    Christmas cake and cheese definitely. A bit of crumbly Wensleydale.
    Proper Yule log
    Brandy butter
    Christmas pud
