It’s a tricky balancing act in December. We want to create a cracking festive atmosphere but without letting tinsel and turkey tedium set in.

Stave off turkey fatigue with fabulous festive feasts

With office parties and family visits, plenty of roast bird and sprouts will be heading customers’ way over Christmas, so treat them to something that’s a little different yet still scrumptiously seasonal.

Ben Bartlett, celebrity chef and brand ambassador for Lion sauces, advises taking a tip from the street food trend.

“Liven up Christmas menus with hot, spicy, smoky flavours inspired by street food from around the world,” says Ben.

“World Flavours from Lion makes it really simple to give festive food an exotically eclectic twist.

“Marinate turkey chunks in Middle Eastern Hot Sauce, then barbecue or chargrill on skewers and serve with a smooth, cool Yogurt & Garlic Dressing, for a flavoursome nod to the traditional Yuletide roast.

“Take your existing menu and introduce a few special touches to create deluxe versions of dishes. Add spicy prawns to burgers; cranberries and stilton to bangers and mash; and smoky, aromatic Chipotle Mayonnaise to a standard chicken wrap.

“Bar food can be as hot and exciting as you like to ring the changes on your menu. Offer a Christmas food cruise meal deal: a tour of Asia with delicious Thai, Japanese, Chinese and Korean platters; a journey to Mexico with spicy turkey fajita wraps; or a trip to Texas with ever-popular pulled meats rich in barbecue flavours.”

World Flavours from Lion brings all the flavour and aroma of the world’s favourite cuisines to your menu – making this a Christmas for your customers to remember!
