The Butler's Pantry Give the Gift of a Stress Free Christmas

The Butler's Pantry, Dublin, Wicklow, Irish Food, Good Food Ireland

Christmas isn’t Christmas without turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes, glazed ham, Christmas pudding, and brandy butter … but it all takes work. A lot of work. And while there are those who enjoy the all the shopping and preparation, there are plenty who would prefer to be enjoying the social aspects of the season rather than being stuck in the kitchen.

The Butler’s Pantry’s Christmas in a Box leaves more time to unwrap presents, take a bracing dip in the Irish Sea, drop in on friends and neighbours, and even fit in a morning screening of Love Actually, all while enjoying the peace of mind that comes with knowing a delicious Christmas Dinner is in hand.

The Butler’s Pantry cooks all its food from scratch in its own kitchen, using fresh, whole ingredients – the way that you would yourself if you didn’t have a hundred and one more exciting things to be doing on the best day of the year.

Christmas in a Box contains all the elements for a gorgeous Christmas Dinner, including smoked salmon and Goatsbridge smoked trout terrine, a crown of Healy’s free-range bronze turkey with traditional stuffing, a loin of free-range bacon, vegetables, potatoes and all the trimmings, with either Christmas pudding or a toffee and pecan meringue roulade to finish. 

With the food taken care of, the only thing missing from the celebrations this year will be the smell of burning martyr.

The Butler’s Pantry also offer Gift Hampers, which make a perfect gift for someone coming home from a holiday, hospital stay or even just a hard week at the office.
