Who’s cooking the turkey for Xmas?

rsz_christmas_bag (1)Drawn the short straw on preparing Christmas dinner this year?

Well, there’s good news for you and all yuletide cooks with My Food Bag bringing back its popular and easy-to-prepare festive feast in 2014.

The three-course My Christmas Food Bag menu features canapés, mains, sides and dessert enough to satisfy even the hungriest on Christmas day.

Plus, each bag includes a step-by-step preparation plan, easy-to-follow recipes and high quality ingredients – free range turkey and ham included. And good news for families with big appetites, there’s enough to feed eight to 10 for only $299 including free delivery.

My Food Bag chef Nadia Lim says ”Christmas Day is one of the busiest days of the year and the one charged with cooking the dinner often misses out on the fun. The Christmas Bag takes all of the stress out of preparing for the big meal by coming up with delicious recipes and delivering all of the ingredients to your door.

“This year we’re bringing back some of our most popular dishes from last year but with a new twist. The ham comes with a citrusy marmalade and brandy glaze and our pavlova has a zingy berry and lemon curd topping, perfect as a post dinner refresher.

“In 2013 the bag was a sell out and we expect it to be as popular this year. Numbers are strictly limited so customers need to order early to avoid missing out.”

My Christmas Bag orders are available from 28 October for delivery on 21 December nationwide. Auckland has an additional delivery day of 22 December. Go to www.myfoodbag.co.nz/order.
