A heady mix of turkey, pork, sage and onion stuffing balls, ham hock and spinach is bound to perk up any lunchtime. And the flavour stakes are kicked up a notch by the addition of tarragon mayo and cranberry and port sauce.
Pret’s Very Merry Christmas Lunch Baguette (£3.75, 50p PFT donation)
This is Pret’s first vegan Christmas Lunch. And what it lacks in meat it makes up for in extras. A stone baked baguette layered with grilled carrots, parsnip puree and crispy onions. And the whole thing is finished off with Pret’s festive chutney, a handful of toasted pistachios and peppery watercress. Tasty!
