Christmas is but one sleep away so it is likely people are thinking about what they want to eat on the big day.

Brussel sprouts yay or nay? We love to have fun with our followers and what better way to kick off the festive season than posing that very question. The response was incredible and proves once and for all that the debate over the ultimate Christmas plate is alive and well!”
