Did you know that the average British person consumes 6,000 calories on Christmas day? DAMN.
That’s a lotta food. *munches on mince pie* *sips hot choccy* *reaches for extra pigs in blankets*
Christmas dinner is the most important meal of the year. FACT. So make sure you do it right.
Luckily for you, we throw an AH-mazing Christmas dinner with all the trimmings that will absolutely smash your mum’s out of the park (but defs don’t tell her that ).
So without further ado, here’s a rundown of why Christmas parties at Revolution are guaranteed to put the brussel in your sprout (IDK either).
WARNING: This blog will make you hungry.
You are so ready for this. All you’ve had is Bucks Fizz and a handful of Quality Street (because you went too hard at Christmas Eve drinks, didn’t you?). You’ve never BEEN more desperate (read: drooling) to dig in and smash some juicy turkey.
But to ease you in gently, we’ve opted for some lip-smackingly light options.
Think smoked salmon and prawns with sour cream and a hint of harissa. Indulgent goat’s cheese and avocado served on charred bread (posh and tasty AF toast). A much-need salt delivery system in the form of moreish Iberico ham croquettes.
Or for the veggies? A sweet as sweet potato soup, which will make your taste buds sing like never before.
Whether you consider turkey your one and only bae, think beef is the only meat you need for mains, or just absolutely LIVE for the trimmings… We’ve got you covered this Christmas.
Seriously, with our super-fresh grilled wild hake for the seafood lovers, or our beet baubles served with roasted veg and baby potatoes for the did-you-know-I’m-a-vegan in the family.
And carnivores, rejoice – our perfectly slow-cooked short rib of beef is making a meaty comeback this year.
Plus, our roast turkey ballotine has had a chorizo-and-cornbread-makeover. Not forgetting we’re serving up both with a rich meaty gravy and goose-fat roast potatoes.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE?!
We don’t know about you, but our favourite festive tradition is going through the season with a “sod it! It’s Christmas” mentality.
So, even after we’ve stuffed our faces with more roast potatoes than we can shake a crispy-on-the-outside-soft-and-fluffy-on-the-inside-stick at, we’re STILL going to have dessert.
Hell, this year’s desserts are so good, we recommend ordering (and not sharing) every single last one.
Start with our boozy, classic Christmas pudding smothered with ginger biscuit custard.
Then feel wonderfully indulgent with our (CHRISTMAS-TREE-SHAPED) chocolate brownie – a winter warmer served with cream and plenty of salted caramel.
And then? Commit several of the seven deadly sins (hey sloth, hey gluttony) with some raspberry sponge cake, wrapped in a layer of chocolate with a cheeky hint of coconut.
Finally, for a dessert to end all desserts? Look no further than our delicious New York baked cheesecake. Packed full of fruity berries, with an indulgent prosecco sorbet, for a festive treat that’s a complete gift to your taste buds.
We, more than anyone, understand the pressures of cooking for large numbers.
Everyone wants a burn-ya-hands-hot plate to plate at the same bloody time, you’ve already spent the best part of a day juggling different cooking times, and some ungrateful bugger is already complaining that the gravy is too thick. ALL this, AND you’re trying to keep everyone’s glass topped up and hold in a massive post-dinner burp during the Queen’s speech.
So, with this in mind, if you really don’t think you can handle a sit down dinner with your fam… Get our Christmas Buffet in your life.
We’ve got all your favourite trimmings. Turkey sliders, smoked salmon and prawns, and porky lil’ pigs in blankets.
Along with some not-so-traditional offerings – chorizo crostini, houmous, roasted veg couscous and hot, steamy mini baked potatoes.
And who doesn’t like a Christmas-themed dessert? You can sample our cutesy Christmas tree brownie, as well as sweet raspberry sponge cake bites. Did somebody say YUM?!
And absolutely no effort on your part required. You just need to sit back, unbuckle your belt, and stuff enough food to feed a small country.
Well, this all sounds pretty darn delicious. So give us a jingle bell if you fancy having a cracking, lip-smacking Christmas party.
Wow. We don’t know about you lot, but we’re in a food coma just thinking about all this food -we’re off for a lie down in a cold, dark room.
