It’s a common misconception that turkey is the must have meat for Christmas dinner, however, we are here to tell you that definitely is not the case!

Baked Glazed Ham
Christmas dinner is not complete without a delicious, glazed ham. This fusion of sweet and salty is the perfect partner to a richer meat like beef or lamb. Another advantage is that it can be prepared in advance, meaning you can spend more time with your guests instead of the kitchen.
Roast Rib of Beef
Take your Christmas dinner to the next level with the Longhorn Rib of Beef. There are so many ways to cook and enjoy this meat dish, it’s one of the most popular alternatives to the classic turkey dinner.
The flat based bone is removed, making it easy for carving. You can also choose your kg, depending on your number of guests. There is also the choice of how many days salt aged you would like the beef, although most people go for 35 days.
Classic Beef Wellington
It’s a classic for a reason, beef wellington is made from fillet steak coated with pate and duxelles, and then wrapped in puff pastry. This is then baked in the oven.
Beef Wellington isn’t a dish served for just any occasion, it’s an indulgence that can be completely justified at Christmas!
Crown of Roast Pork
Choosing crown of roast pork for your Christmas dinner is sure to please your dinner guests! This display is created by taking a bone-in pork loin and assembling it into a circle. Point the ribs into the centre to build the ultimate showstopper for your dinner table.
