The opener to your Christmas lunch menu is all-important to ensure your festive gathering goes with a bang, and we've got a host of Christmas Day starter recipes to inspire your special family meal.
Smoked salmon is a traditional start to any Christmas lunch but there are plenty of alternative seasonal recipe ideas to whet your appetite!
For a gastro pub spin on your menu, why not try serving our chicken liver and brandy pate recipe
with chunks of homemade bread or crostini. Or, if you're welcoming a vegetarian for Christmas lunch then a seasonal salad with bold flavours will satisfy veggies and meat-eaters alike; our red chicory, goat's cheese and walnut salad
is the perfect opener.
