Christmas is supposed to be fun – yes even in 2020 – so if cooking the dinner always gets you in a flap, it’s time to let someone else do the hard graft. And that someone is Monty Clevely. Her company Full Monty Events, in partnership with chef Anna Humphreys, has created a hassle-free Christmas Day box containing everything you need for your festive feast.
All the produce is locally sourced and for £95 per person, you get the full works – that means brunch of pancakes or salmon, eggs & avo; canapes; a free range turkey for the main event; sides like roasties, maple glazed carrots, chestnut & cranberry stuffing, sprouts with pancetta, red cabbage and pigs in blankets: plus a flaming fig pudding and a Neal’s Yard cheeseboard for dessert.
All the peeling and prep is done for you, so all you have to do is pop the food in the oven and plate it up. You can even add in wine, champagne and port and table decorations to your order, so you don’t have to plan anything for the big day. Full Monty also has Christmas Eve supper (including fish pie or marmalade glazed ham) and Boxing Day breakfast boxes on offer, meaning you can spend the holidays eating, drinking and lounging around in your PJs.
