    After seeing the turkey prices of some of the local butchers I imagine there will be a lot not having turkey this year,  £29 per kg!. Whilst I'm not a bad cook, I'm also no Delia Smith to do a £100+ piece of meat any favours. 


    Make £2023 in 2023 (#36) £3479.30/£2023

    Make £2024 in 2024...

    It's still the same piece of meat that people have cooked for the last forever.
    Just a much expensive piece of meat.

    This year we kick off with farm-made chicken liver pâté from Lincolnshire, followed by roast pheasant from the Duke of Abergavenny's estate in Sussex. This with home made chestnut cream, Brussels sprouts with whole chestnuts and carrot and swede mash. Instead of Christmas pud, organic banana custard.

    We're having chicken. I think my mother is getting it from the butcher though so it will be nice (thank goodness). She's an amazing cook although she does get a bit stressed at the vital moments! We usually have goose when the whole family gets together which I am actually not so keen on. I heard something earlier this year about a turkey shortage.

    We had roast pheasant from the Duke of Abergavenny's Estate.  Big disappointment. Dry and tasteless. We've had some fab pheasant in the past but this was awful.
