Picking the Right Roast for Christmas Dinner

There’s no denying it, with the arrival of the festive season comes pressure. From entertaining guests to serving up the perfect roast dinner, the Christmas period can be as stressful as it joyous.


If you’ve been wracking your brain trying to figure out which roast to make for your guests this year, you should find that our guide will point you in the right direction. Are you looking to play it safe with traditional crowd-pleasing roasts or do you want to give your guests something to talk about until next Christmas?


Either way, pay a visit to our festive selection page to find out the perfect roast for your Réveillon this Christmas.   


Beef Roast

Roast beef is traditionally a staple found on dinner tables around the world at Christmas time. Prime rib, tenderloin, rump and fillets can all be turned into divine Christmas dinner roasts. While some people think a beef roast is playing it safe, with options like waygu beef and prime cuts of Angus beef  no one would dare call your roast boring.


Capon Roast

While roast chicken is a Christmas dinner go-to, many people have become interested in its capon counterpart. For those of you who don’t know, a capon is a plump castrated cockerel and the quality of its flesh is like none other. If you’re feeding a crowd of 8 to 10 people, consider our special ready to cook Christmas Truffle Capon and give your guests something to talk about. 


Turkey Roast  

Don’t think that roast turkey is synonymous with Thanksgiving as these birds make for a beautiful Christmas dinner roast too. The stress that typically accompanies cooking turkey is eliminated by our ready to cook Christmas turkey. Feeding a crowd? Our turkey can feed between 8 and 18 people depending on which option you pick. And you needn’t worry about sides either as our gift to you this Christmas is providing all of them—from the roast potatoes on the side to the cranberry sauce on top.


Guinea Fowl Roast

If you’re looking for a juicy roast to impress your intimate gathering of friends and family this Christmas, look no further than a Guinea Fowl roast. Our Guinea Fowl is stuffed with chestnuts and truffles & includes all the trimmings needed for a proper Christmas dinner. To make the festive season as stress-free as possible, our Guinea Fowl roast dinner arrives ready to cook and will fill 4 to 6 tummies.


Lamb Roast

Why not spice things up this Christmas by skipping the bird and beef & opt instead for a delicious lamb roast? From crowns to legs, lamb cuts can be enjoyed many ways. A lamb rack is a fantastic option that also makes for a visually appealing centerpiece—after all, we eat with our eyes first. 


Today we are fortunate enough to be able to pick and choose which meats we’d like to indulge in over the festive season—make the most of having so many options to choose from. No matter which roast you pick to be the star of your Christmas dinner, we know it’ll turn out beautifully.  And don’t hesitate to navigate our online gourmet grocery where you will find many great products for your recipes
