We’ve just had our Christmas Lunch Buffet where students bought in traditional foods that they would eat at Christmas. This was a great way to celebrate and taste different cultures and traditions from around the world; but what do the Brits traditionally eat at Christmas? Here are our top 10 traditional British Christmas foods:
Traditionally in Britain, herb stuffing is eaten with the turkey at Christmas. This is made up of large amounts of herbs such as rosemary or thyme. The stuffing is served inside the turkey or as a side dish.
4. Pigs in Blankets
Many Brits argue that Christmas dinner is not complete without pigs in blankets! These are small sausages that are wrapped in bacon. Vegetarian versions can be made too using meat free alternatives.
Parsnips are a root vegetable traditionally eaten at Christmas as the winter frost makes them taste slightly sweeter. For Christmas dinner, parsnips are usually baked with garnishes or flavourings such as honey mustard.
Why not try some of these Traditional British Christmas foods this year?
