Ah, Christmas Dinner... roast turkey, honey glazed ham, chestnut stuffing, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, parsnips, seven different types of vegetables, bread sauce, gravy...
Sounds amazing, yes, but what about all the time and effort that goes into buying, preparing and cooking it? The holidays can be stressful enough without the added pressure of trying to serve the perfect meal; isn't it time the designated cooks had the bit of time off and handed the reigns (no, not Rudolph's!) over to someone else this year?
Here at thebestof Colchester, we have the perfect alternative. Our friends at La Cascada Restaurant and Tapas Bar has a selection of delicious festive menus in the run-up to the big day, as well as a fantastic six-course menu for Christmas Day itself.
All menus feature the traditional classics, as well as a few Mediterranean flavours... perfect for all tastes!
