This Year, Place a Phone Order for Your Christmas Dinner
Cooking an elaborate Christmas dinner is not always possible, especially if you have a busy work life. But that doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy a Christmas feast. If you live in London, you can do so by just picking up your phone and ordering a dinner in a box. All you have to do is purchase the ingredients for an entire Christmas dinner and deliver it to the agency you want your dinner to be cooked at. You can do so two to four days before Christmas and your ‘Christmas dinner in a box’ shall be delivered to you on Christmas day.
Daylesford, a Gloucestershire-based farm shop, was one of the first such establishments to come up with the idea but since past three years, more and more companies have come on board. The deals offered by different shops vary. While some shops may do the shopping of ingredients on your behalf, others have professional cooks to turn up smart dishes for your Christmas dinner. Some companies provide you completely ready-to-eat dinner while others will do the basic cooking and leave the rest to you.
Some of the prominent companies that are available for the dial-a-Christmas-dinner service are-
