It might still be summer but Booths is already thinking about our festive treats
Luckily for us those clever people at Booths are ahead of the game and are prepped and ready for Christmas. We joined a special gathering in the height of the summer to mingle and chat, and of course, to enjoy, Christmas. The range will be in stores later in the year.
Our summertime-Christmas tasters loved this Booths Bronze Turkey. It's an award-winning free-range turkey, slow-grown with an intense flavour.
Red cabbage braised with port, glazed sprouts with pancetta, roasties, carrots and parsnips. It's a great Northern Christmas dinner!

Sausages are a delicious addition to any Christmas table but Booths Swirly Pigs in Blankets seem to go on forever! There's a really nice touch of seasoning.
We used our loaf as our exclusive invitation allowed us to explore all that Booths has to offer this Christmas. We didn't waste time tucking in.
Don't tell anyone, but our tasters kept nipping back for an extra taste of Booths Stilton-stuffed mushrooms. They're topped with a mustard and parsley breadcrumb.
These tasted amazing. Happy Belly Vegetarian Scotch Eggs are created from sweet potato and feta. They're ideal for entertaining, even the meat-lovers.
From Booths Marshmallow Milkshake Bites to Booths Black Forest Brownie Bites .. there's a lovely range of sweet treats to tuck into this Christmas.
Sorry for the pun. But Booths' All Butter Mince Pies are delicious, with a light-as-feather sugar dusting. Even in summer, it felt like Christmas after one bite.
Garstang White, Applebys Cheshire, Wensleydale Blue, Wensleydale with Cranberry and Dewlay Special Reserve Lancashire Wedge. Be proud of the North!
Booths' British Chicken Cushion with Cranberry and Pork Stuffing was incredibly moreish. The stuffing is gluten-free which nowadays is a useful fact to know.
Booths Festive Milk and White Chocolate Clusters are Belgian chocolate heaven with cornflakes, honeycomb, white chocolate rice crispies, and marshmallows.
Booths King Prawn Stars are an inspired tasty morsel. King prawns and mixed vegetables are wrapped in shortcrust pastry and topped with sesame seeds.
This delicious port is full-bodied with fruit-forward notes. Our taster tried it with cheese, and then with a little bit more cheese. Purely for your benefit, of course.
Our taster was blown away by Booths' 20 Year Old Tawny Port which has notes of almonds, figs and spices. This was delicious with a bite of mince pie.
Only the best chardonnay and pinot noir grapes have been used to create Booths Champagne. It is so elegant, with orchard fruits and citrus greeting you at every sip
