When it comes to a three-course Christmas meal, you really must start the meal as you mean to go on. If you have pulled out all the stops with your main meal, an average starter just would not do.
Your festive starter should be light, tasty, and a reflection of what is to come.
Everyone has their own preferred starter; you can guarantee on Christmas Day there will be two to three options available to cater to all desires.
This year our in-house chefs have created starter options which serve between one to two people, including a delicious Twice Baked Cheese Souffle, a mouth-watering Goats Cheese En Croute, and a scrumptious Cranberry & Lentil Bake.
If you are opting for a Prawn Cocktail, the most traditional Christmas Day starter, then you are in luck with Blackwells Prawn Cocktail, coated with Mary Rose sauce with chunks of chilli, celery, and pepper to season.
For an elegant and tasty starter, Pate served on a fresh baguette or toast is also a popular choice. As a Christmas special our chefs have created a creamy Goose Liver & Brandy Pate, smooth on the palette and rich in flavour. Perfect for your Christmas Day starter or even part of your evening buffet.
