First things first Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a turkey now would it! You might be wondering why and even how this one is so glam. Well it completely has everything to do with a special trip to the Welsh boarder and a very festive Iceland Christmas.
Of course I’m not referring to that freezing and mysterious country just off the coast of Greenland, but rather our very own and very British Iceland Foods! I was whisked away on my first ever trip so close to Wales that I’m still not actually sure if I have been to Wales or not but hey ho, I was never that good at Geography in school. Deeside is where Iceland HQ is based, about 30 mins from Chester. I was lucky enough to get an inside peek at their brainstorming product development kitchen and a very intimate cooking demonstration by the main Chef behind everything Iceland, Neil Nugent.
We started off with the main attraction of course, which was this beautiful and I must say delicious Luxury Gilded Turkey With a Mustard & Honey Glaze. If you’re looking for something a bit special to dazzle the in laws with this Christmas, then you can easily make your own. Just pick up a couple of sheets of edible gold leaf transfer, easy peasy! The Turkeys at Iceland are great quality and as fresh as can be. All food at Iceland is frozen with a new inside out magnetic technology, which keeps the structure and texture of the food in tact. Not a soggy, tasteless nightmare in sight!
You’ll be pleased to know that there is more on offer at Iceland than frozen Turkey. The new range of Luxury Christmas Party Food is simply mouthwatering. The best part for me is the seafood selection. I’m a huge lover of all things prawn and lobster, can’t get enough of it! There’s also some great finger food as well as all the trimmings to go with your masterpiece of a Turkey.
Let’s not forget the second most important thing when it comes to Christmas dinner….one’s favourite tipple. In this case I think mine is now a mice pie martini! Not my usual drink of choice but after my semi Welsh adventure there is nothing that compares. I have to say I’ve only become a lover of mince pies within the last two years. It was one of my childhood food phobias that I have clearly gotten well over. You can definitely say that I thoroughly enjoyed tasting Iceland’s take on Luxury Mince Pies.
The Iceland Christmas Deserts range is a well kept secret that I’m about to let out of the bag at full speed. Iceland has come top of the range in the Luxury Christmas Deserts category, beating all of the high street and supermarket retailers. Even better, is that the prices at Iceland mean that you can eat Christmas treats until your heart is content this year.
I managed to eat at least a one slice of everything from the Luxury Christmas Deserts selection at Iceland. The art and construction that goes in to these deserts is just amazing. It was fascinating to hear the inspiration behind some of these Christmas deserts. You can really see that the Chefs behind these delicious creations are world class. Iceland have everything from Mini Creme Brûlées to Melting Chocolate Snowflakes on offer. My all time favourite has to be the Luxury Raspberry & Pistachio Pavlova available at just £6. It’s such a light and refreshing desert.
I know where I will be doing my Christmas food shopping this year and I’m super happy that I’ll be saving a bundle in the process. It’s so great to have choice available and even better when you come across such a great little find just around the corner!
Wishing you all a great Christmas and a happy new year. I hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating with tons of family and friends and that you get everything you’ve been wishing for 🙂
