Craig spends the day with frozen food giant Iceland and samples some of their Luxury Christmas food range
Christmas, as we know, is a time when we pull out all the stops. It’s a time for giving and for sharing, and food is a massive part of that. It’s a time when we spend a lot of money on food, the type of foods that we love, but don’t have during the rest of the year. We treat ourselves and our loved ones to luxury items. This year Iceland are offering a wide range of luxury foods for Christmas, but is it luxury? and how does it compare to other brands? Why should we buy from Iceland this year? And will our guests know?
For this sponsored post I want to share my experience and my thoughts on the food that is on offer from Iceland this Christmas.
Arriving at the Iceland head office just outside Chester, we were immediately greeted with a warm welcome, a drink and wonderful aroma of cooking turkey. Not being cooked in a conventional oven I hasten to add but on a barbecue! This is apparently a great way to free up oven space on the big day to ensure that you get those perfect roast potatoes! Who knew!
We were then ushered in to the kitchen where we were treated to a lesson in cooking lobster tails. I have to admit to never having eaten lobster but I have to tell you it was incredible! Cooked on the griddle and then placed on a bed of hay before being set alight to give a smokey taste and then placed in a taco, with guacamole and other delicious accompaniments. The tails cost £11 for two.
